14.04 boots to grub screen

Asked by Mark Malin on 2018-07-09

After the most recent 14.04 update, I restarted as the directions said to and my HP Pavilion went to the grub directory with 3 options.1- Ubuntu, enter. Screen goes dark then comes back to the same screen. 2-advanced options for Ubuntu, chose recovery mode, enter, comes back to grub screen. 3-system setup, enter, to startup menu. All selections eventually bring me back to grub screen. Is there a command that will boot me correctly or get me out of this 'pit'?
I can power off but when I power on again it is still stuck in this.
I am expecting this to boot normally on power up.

Drop to root recovery console and run:

mount -O remount,rw /
update-grub
reboot

Does that work OK?

Can you help with this problem?
