No idea about the other things, but:
I don't understand.
According to the man page neither update-grub nor grub-mkconfig have
an "-x" option.
It's a shell feature: if you do "set -x" in a shell script, all the
commands in the current shell get transcribed (to stdout, I think).
It didn't provide any additional details when running update-grub.
In a shell, type "help set" to learn a lot (better "help set | less").
I learned I need to study more ;/
It appears to be a summary of a more complete document.
What would it be? Is it on the web?
So if you sneak a "set -x" into said shell scripts you get to see
what they are "thinking". Very useful for debugging purposes.
