Another work around is booting a usb or cd to edit the file, then reboot again.

comment Different results of 'ps aux | grep x' if entered manually and done via script
As requested before, can you post the scripts and data you are getting now and what you think you want as a result?

@cyfe14 often when grepping for a process the grep itself will show up in the list. | grep -v grep | will remove any greps from the pipe. what is the answer you settled on? This will explain fork.

comment How to run a tail -f log monitor script as a systemd service
this one shows how to use an awk script that acts like tail -f. stackoverflow q 9101296 Googling for "awk tail" had these and a few other interesting hits.

comment How to run a tail -f log monitor script as a systemd service
I think this is answered by turning off tail's buffer and/or using a while loop as described in this superuser question. superuser q 742238

First try su without sudo. Can you provide the missing file with what it thinks it needs?

comment Ubuntu 14 to 15 upgrade broken but now fixed, or is it
As all errors are not created equal, do you happen to have the 8 errors? Your instinct is good but the specific packages are where the real details begin. Knowing which packages will help you begin to narrow your focus. Doing a clean install is usually safer than an upgrade. LTS to LTS upgrades (like 14.04 to 16.04) are much, much more tested. You will find more details about them. Also current releases like 15.10 will have more current information available in IRC freenode channels like #Ubuntu or your state/country LoCo channel.

Good hint. When the Cygwin version of screen started to crash vim I switched back to tmux again very quickly. Love it.

Have you disabled all your wireless? without the data in the diagnostic information we can not see how it is trying to work.
