X1 Yoga 3rd Gen firmware update using fwupdmgr broke my boot

This is a heads up message as I was able to recover my system by doing a grub2-install booting from a recovery USB.

 

I must say I had used `fwupdmgr update` before to update my Thinkpad's firmware and it worked flawlessly. However, this last update left my boot pointing at the wiped out Windows boot in UEFI, which rendered my boot broken.

 

If anyone from Lenovo is listening, please try to avoid breaking Linux user's systems Smiley Wink . It is more disapointing when this happens using a Linux only toolchain (Btw, kudos for the support of lvfs!)

 

This is my `fwupdmgr get-history` output in case it provides some useful info:
