Question No ground wire on new ceiling light fixture

I am replacing the ugly lights in the hall of our condo with some taken down from the house we live in. The ones I am putting in do not have a ground wire( just the black and white wires). The ones being taken out have a ground wire. What do I need to attach the ground wire to that is running out of the blue box in the ceiling?

If the light fixtures have neither a grounding wire nor a grounding screw, then just tuck the grounding wire in the ceiling into the back of the box.
