Frozen Upgrade

Description

A week or so ago I tried to upgrade from Belenos to Flidas and I got as far as a prompt to "Select an UEFI file as trusted for executing". Before the selection was complete the upgrade froze and then crashed. Now at startup I can only get to window: "GNU GRUB version 2.02" offering three options which cycle me through entering passwords and then back to "GNU GRUB version 2.02"
At BIOS Security I have access to passwords for Supervisor, User, and HDD. "Password on boot" is disabled. I don't seem to have access to "Secure Boot Mode" and its several interesting options including "Select UEFI . . . ".
BTW. I don't have a clue as to what UEFI is my optimum. During upgrade I intended to go with what appeared to be the default which I recall as being "local".

I can't help with this, but also hope that SOMEONE WHO CAN - WILL! - respond with some info!
I've been using Trisquel 8.0 since Sept 2018, but saw no such reference to UEFI, perhaps because its beyond the capacity of this particular motherboard's CMOS/BIOS chip. BUT, IF Trisquel 8 really can handle UEFI, I'd like to install it on another computer that can... and may even require it so I can replace MS Windows.
