You can edit the file /etc/default/grub and change the value of GRUB_TIMEOUT to be 0 and that should do the trick

Code:
sudo nano /etc/default/grub

change the timeout line, then press ctrl-x and then y and then enter.
then issue the command

Code:
sudo update-grub

When the update has finished reboot and the grub screen should not appear (or it will disappear very quickly).

No did not fix, still gnu grub version 2.02~beta2-36unbuntu3. Minimal bash with grub> òn screen, enter exit then get boot manger. Trying to get rid of these steps. Thank you.

Hmmm... You get a grub prompt first?
If that is the case then I would guess grub is not installed correctly or it is set up in a manner to which I am not accustomed. I never see the grub prompt on any of my systems unless grub has encountered an error booting up and requires some manual intervention.
You could try re-installing grub to see if that fixes the problem with
Code:
sudo grub-install /dev/sda
This is assuming your boot drive is sda, if it is something else set it to whatever is your boot device.

please run "sudo gedit /etc/default/grub" and paste the results here.
