Just installed a fresh official Ubuntu 16.04 Desktop LTS on an Intel NuC5i7.
sudo apt install upstart-sysv; sudo reboot will break my system.
The boot is stuck on a purple screen.
I can access another terminal with
If I switch back with
Ctrl-Alt-F6 I get a cryptic error (not sure if it is related):
/lib+/init/init-d-script: 12: /etc/rc2.d/S02whoopsie: -c: node found basename: missing operand
I have reproduced it inside a Virtualbox VM, I'm redirected to a terminal login at boot with the following error message:
[ 17.012097] systemd-logind: Failed to start user service, ignoring: Unknown unit: email@example.com
Is it just me? What can I do to fix my system and have a working upstart?
