This is what it means.

1) You can't install the grub package anymore, unless you build it from AUR.
2) The grub-bios package will install grub2.


Your local grub package will not be replaced (as far as I can see now),
so you will keep it, it just won't receive any updates. Furthermore,
your grub installation in /boot is not updated at all (it wasn't updated
automatically on previous grub updates either, unless you did so manually).

In short, unless you choose to install the new grub packages and
uninstall the legacy one, nothing will happen.
