Reposting from https://askubuntu.com/a/679889/323093:

You will get more details when running gdm manually in a virtual console (Ctrl + Alt + F1):

sudo gdm

For me, the problem was that gdm wasn't able to find /usr/bin/X, which led me to this bug. Turns out xserver-xorg was not installed somehow. The following line solves this particular problem.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg

Hope this helps.
