I need to install the Graphics Driver in my Ubuntu 16.10 but when I try to install the Intel Graphics updater I get:
This package is uninstallable
Dependency is not satisfiable:

I fiddled around until I got it working, here's what I think the actual steps you need to do to get the existing intel graphics driver working with 16.10 are:
$ sudo cp /etc/lsb-release /etc/lsb-release.backup
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu DISTRIB_RELEASE=16.04 DISTRIB_CODENAME=xenial DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 16.04"
$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 56A3DEF863961D39
$ sudo intel-linux-graphics-installer
$ mv /etc/lsb-release.backup /etc/lsb-release
After that, it'll prompt you to reboot. After the reboot I'm running using the intel drivers.

See the original link below to original post, i just forked this to fit 16.10, https://theclonker.de/removing-the-intel-linux-graphics-driver/
Open a new Terminal (CTRL+Alt+T) and make a new file
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/preferences.d/intel-removal
Paste this code in the File and save it
Package: * Pin: release a=yakkety* Pin-Priority: 1001 Package: * Pin: origin download.01.org Pin-Priority: -100
Then run in terminal
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
(this will install back the packages you had originally)
Then just some cleaning in terminal
sudo rm /etc/apt/preferences.d/intel-removal sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/intellinuxgraphics.list* sudo apt-get update
Don’t forget to remove the actual Drivers !
sudo apt-get purge i965-3.6-3.5-dkms intel-linux-graphics-installer
reboot and you are done.
Its because Ubuntu 16.10 is not using libpackagekit-glib2-16 its using libpackagekit-glib2-18 then the installer cannot find the package "libpackagekit-glib2-16" and give this error i have the same problem i think best is to wait for release for Ubuntu 16.10 or hard way and get sources from Ubuntu 16.04 and download libpackagekit-glib2-16 using
sudo apt-get install libpackagekit-glib2-16 but best is to wait for 16.10 drivers release because you never know if libpackagekit-glib2-16 will work on 16.10
You can get the dependency you need from here:
then install it with either dpkg -i or gdebi package installer :) Don't forget to run with sudo intel-graphics-update-tool
