Grub updates won’t finish because os-prober hangs? Here’s a workaround…

I have experienced this issue several times through the years with my current hardware… each time I have to re-learn how to get around it. Here is the simplest one yet, thanks to “Leppie” at ubuntuforums:

sudo chmod a-x /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober

This disables the os-prober that Debian based OS’s run when updating the system.
