You are right on target to jump-up.
I agree that It is a red-faced problem that should not have made it into a distro.
I had the same problem you mentioned.
However, There is a solution in hand.
On the Arron-Kelly Net blog, the problem was pointed on April 29, 2011. On the Ubuntu forum, the problem has been dealt with similarly.
Using the Live-CD, Ubuntu 11.04 will install properly.
"" start Arron-Kelly Net
My reading seems to indicate that this happens if you upgrade from Ubuntu 10.10 which itself had been upgraded from Ubuntu 10.04, and grub was never reinstalled.
I think it is completely ridiculous that this bug made it all the way to the Ubuntu 11.04 final release — leaving the system unbootable after an upgrade is a disaster.
