for the problem description.

But you seem to have two different kind of problems. One is the dpkg
warning message. You can get rid of it with installing the latest grml
kernel from the grml testing repostory.

The other one is a little bit more problematic:

It seems that you want to upgrade your iso image via apt-get upgrade. I
assume you have setup a persistent partition and want to update your usb
stick. This does not work with grub as it tries to load the support for
your specific fs (in your case aufs) which does not exist and exists.

I dont know a solution you just may uninstall grub and just install a
dummy package (equivs) to resolve the dependencies of the kernel image.
