Refreshed the installation (ran upgrade once again). Nothing got installed
as expected and just boot loader config was redone. It's solved now.

First impression of grub2 is BAD!..

Earlier I could boot my external drive on any m/c. Now it boots only on
the machine where installation was carried out - I mean despite use of
UUIDs...
