So it only took me three hours to discover that in

 /etc/default/grub

the line

 GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="maybe-ubiquity"

was changed to

 GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="console=tty1 console=ttyS0"

which fucked everything up.

I changed it back to what it was and now my VM boots again.

Hooray!

May the Force be with you,
