Grub-common failed to update (and install)

MR ZenWiz
I'm running Xubuntu 16.04 in a VB VM (on Windows 7).

I tried to do a software update, and I got an error while the updater
tried to update grub-common - it says the service is not running.

When I tried to force the install, I got this:

Preparing to unpack .../grub-common_2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.17_amd64.deb ...
Failed to stop grub-common.service: Unit grub-common.service not loaded.

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Is ther a way around this and what?

Thanks.
