comment X.org does not start after 15.10 to 16.04 upgrade
@NikaBoss, that solution does not mention nvidia or bumblebee at all. I don't think it's related.

comment X.org does not start after 15.10 to 16.04 upgrade
@Kodeart, after some poking around, I learnt that bumblebee is not supported any more. It's not been updated in 3 years (anecdotal, haven't verified myself). Installing nvidia-361 and nvidia-prime, and then using nvidia-settings to disable the nvidia card did the job for me. You might notice KDE doesn't have any desktop/window effects after doing that. To fix it, you need to go into system settings -> Display/Monitor -> Compositor and switch the rendering backend to OpenGL 3.1.

Interestingly, when I did a purge removal of nvidia-* and bumblebee-* packages, the system booted up fine.

comment Installing Software in recovery mode
We can try to fix the problem that's preventing your system from booting. Do you see any error messages? If you can boot into recovery mode, can you grab /var/log/syslog and /var/log/Xorg.0.log and paste them somewhere?

comment Kubuntu 13.10 Wifi doesn't work - DHCP timeout
Could you try deleting the stored configurations by clicking the spanner icon in the network applet? Deleting it and reconnecting seemed to work for me. If that doesn't work, I'd try asking in #kubuntu or #kubuntu-devel on Freenode IRC. I know that shadeslayer was working on this issue.

comment Ubuntu Heating Up, Continuos Fan, Hadoop Installation Worries on AMD 64
Note that I am not familiar with AMD hybrid graphics, so I just gave the first link I could find (Arch wiki). If you determine you have hybrid graphics, you might want to try finding something more specific to Ubuntu, e.g. ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1930450.
