This question already has an answer here:
I "upgraded" to Ubuntu 16.04 and am sorry I did. Problems abound, I will only list one here.
The Dash now cannot now find any applications. Nothing shows up in any category except for the "Dash plugins", and "Files and Folders".
I can still run applications using F2 or from the terminal or launchpad.
Any help would be appreciated. Windows is looking less bad now.
