Follow-up Comment #1, bug #28816 (project grub):

Do you use Debian or Ubuntu?
Then run sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc and check that the device listed in
the debconf prompt for it is the one where your BIOS boots from.
Else run grub-install on the right device.

Such errors can only happen if grub-install gets run on a device where your
BIOS does not boot from.
It will still update /boot/grub but not the GRUB code which is in MBR and
usually also in the embeding area between MBR and the first partition.
