grub-mkconfig cannot complete the installation if installed in a folder that was not created earlier.
If you run the grub-install command before that, the / boot / grub folder is created and the grub.cfg configuration file is created in it.
After that, grub-mkconfig runs without problems.

Additional info:
core/grub 2:2.02-8
* config and/or log files etc

Steps to reproduce:

[napaster@ArchPaster ~]$ sudo grub-mkconfig -o /tmp/test.cfg
Generating grub configuration file …
Found image linux: /boot/vmlinuz-linux
Found image initrd: /boot/initramfs-linux.img
Found fallback initrd image(s) in /boot: initramfs-linux-fallback.img

But if you point to a folder that is not created, then the result is

[napaster@ArchPaster ~]$ sudo grub-mkconfig -o /tmp/test/test.cfg
/usr/bin/grub-mkconfig: строка 245: /tmp/test/ There is no such file or directory

This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  This is acting as expected, given that upstream code is what is causing it to happen. And I don't see why this is a problem in the first place, many commands are like that.
