I got a strange error after upgrading Ubuntu 16.04 to 16.10.
The Software Updater suggests a partial update:
Could not install 'systemd-shim'
The upgrade will continue but the 'systemd-shim' package may not be in a working state. Please consider submitting a bug report about it.
subprocess installed post-removal script returned error exit status 2
sudo apt-get update finishes without any error.
sudo apt-get remove outputs this
The following packages will be REMOVED: systemd-shim 0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 1 to remove and 0 not to upgrade. 1 not fully installed or removed. After this operation, 71.7 kB disk space will be freed. Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y (Reading database ... 1451244 files and directories currently installed.)

Please help me to fix this error. Thank you.
