So I am not knowledgeable about computers. Upgraded today to 20.04 when prompted. Screen goes to and stops at GNU GRUB version 2.02, with underneath;

Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or fil completions.


What do I do from here?

  • Hello! I had this problem yesterday, I fix it with typing exit, have you tried that? (I know it sounds like a trivial thing, but try it, and reply if it worked) Commented Oct 10, 2020 at 13:03

    Does this answer your question? How do I boot my PC from GRUB?

If you didn't use manual partitioning, so your boot is in UEFI mode. Type reboot after grub>, press Enter, after restart press F12 (or something else, depends on your laptop or PC) go to your boot menu, set your boot option UEFI.

Ubuntu 20.04 use boot on UEFI mode not LEGACY. (if you use minimal installation from mini.iso image, you can boot it on LEGACY mode)
