No Grub menu after updating

I received an update with grub-silent replacing grub many days ago and now, grub menu does not appear on boot.

This is my grub config.

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="splash rd.udev.log_priority=3 vt.global_cursor_default=0 systemd.unified_cgroup_hi
erarchy=1 loglevel=2 nowatchdog mitigations=off libahci.ignore_sss=1 sysrq_always_enabled=1 rd.systemd.show_st
atus=false quiet"

# Preload both GPT and MBR modules so that they are not missed
GRUB_PRELOAD_MODULES="part_gpt part_msdos"

# Uncomment to enable booting from LUKS encrypted devices

# Uncomment to enable Hidden Menu, and optionally hide the timeout count

# Uncomment to use basic console

# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal

# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'

# Uncomment to allow the kernel use the same resolution used by grub

# Uncomment if you want GRUB to pass to the Linux kernel the old parameter
# format "root=/dev/xxx" instead of "root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/xxx"

# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries

# Uncomment and set to the desired menu colors.  Used by normal and wallpaper
# modes only.  Entries specified as foreground/background.

# Uncomment one of them for the gfx desired, a image background or a gfxtheme

# Uncomment to get a beep at GRUB start
#GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"

# Uncomment to make GRUB remember the last selection. This requires
# setting 'GRUB_DEFAULT=saved' above.



Ideally I would like the grub menu to appear and nothing else (no logs and no 'Welcome to GRUB' message). Currently I get the welcome message and it boots directly to linux-zen kernel with a splash (loading) screen and HP logo in-between.

Can you help me with this? And really thank you for maintaining this ye beauty💝.

did you make sure your monitor does display the grub menu within 3 seconds? :grimacing:
I had this a few times where my displays simply did not turn on fast enough.
So either while starting the PC press the UP and DOWN arrows so the timeout is aborted or increase the timeout.

Make sure all the configs are reset to the default.
