Has happened to many people before:

You installed a "kernel" update, which runs /sbin/new-kernel-pkg
which in turn reinstalls GRUB via grubby. The kernel package is
not the culprit, however. Something at run-time has changed your
system environment in a way that confused the GRUB installation.
How exactly remains to be found out.

You need to reinstall GRUB just once more. Use rescue mode,
for example. I think above bz ticket gives hints.
