Hello! I have two distros on my PC:
on /dev/sda - Guix
on /dev/sdc - Ubuntu

Today, after update and upgrade of newly installed Ubuntu and also after installation of lubuntu-desktop and lxde on ubuntu,
I was unfortunately grieved.
Lubuntu had recovered my Grub and had broken everything!
I was need to boot into Guix with grub command line and make `guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm` for to get my Grub
controlling by Guix again!

I have a question. Have I any possibility to secure and save my Grub from other buggy distros i may setup on other ssd in my pc?

I think it will be hard to fight with ubuntu or debian or some other distro not to touch Grub.

My guess is that there is no universal way. Maybe remove the grub
package from Ubuntu? I don't have anything Debian based to test it
with, but I think that would disable the upgrade hooks that run
grub-mkconfig.
