I can't view any wifi networks after upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04 from 14.04. This issue also occurred when trying to upgrade to Ubuntu 15.10. This is what my network window looks like:
Also there is no option for Wifi in the dropdown menu in the top right. The screenshots are from Ubuntu GNOME, but it also doesn't work for standard Ubuntu. How can I enable wifi networks?
