Not sure if you're seeing the same issue I had, but I had a similar 
problem with grub2 a week or two back. The cfg file was not getting 
updated. I tracked it down to a bug in this file


It made reference to grub-probe when it should have been grub2-probe. 
This was causing grub2-mkconfig to fail to update the file (without an 
error message too). Replacing grub-probe with grub2-probe in that file 
might help.

Alternatively adding the following to /etc/grub/default will disable the 
os prober (if you don't need it anyway, ie if you're not dual/tripple 
booting etc)
