Hi,

The update probably changed boot to the default option. You have to go back to the EFI/BIOS settings and change the path to the location of the linux efi bootloader. It's going to be something like /EFI/BOOT/grub.efi. I assume that the linux bootloader is on the same EFI partition like the Windows one.
