This eems unrelated.  The problem sounds like GRUB and its modules
aren’t found for some reason.

I reconfigured a workstation yesterday and also saw this line.  It does
look like an error, but it seems to be completely harmless.  I could
boot juts fine.  I suppose that’s just the part where new service
definitions are loaded.

The problem you’re seeing is unrelated to this output.
