Ubuntu / Mint : "error: symbol 'grub_efi_find_last_device_path' not found"

A few months back my working Ubuntu / Windows setup suddenly stopped working.  Ubuntu boots fine but trying to open Windows gave an error like this :
"error: symbol 'grub_efi_find_last_device_path' not found"
The cause here is a bug in grub2.  To fix force a downgrade to the previous version of grub2.
