I have seen this issue on a number of sites but seems no one has an answer to it. After upgrading from 16.04 to 16.10 Chrome and all Google services crashes. This seems to only happen on an upgrade and not on fresh installs. I have reinstalled chrome with no luck. Also based on a suggestion I cleared the cache and recreated the profile but did not help. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Based on a suggestion below I ran this in the terminal here are the results:

  • I have the same issue after updating to latest 16.04 updates. However I use firefox and am not sure if it is related to your issue – Stefano Mtangoo Oct 24 '16 at 14:17
  • it seems the problem is only with Chrome. My fresh install system is having the same issue. Chromium is working without any issues. – Nitemn Oct 25 '16 at 17:42
  • To help diagnose the issue, try running chrome by opening a terminal window and typing chrome or google-chrome (I forget which it is). Then when it crashes, there should hopefully be some helpful error messages visible in the terminal window. – Nick Weinberg Oct 26 '16 at 20:35
  • I ran chrome in terminal and posted the results above. – Nitemn Oct 28 '16 at 3:12

Maybe the problem is in Chrome 54 and not Ubuntu. (16.10 was released at October 20th and Chrome 64 October 21st) I found the previous release here http://www.slimjet.com/chrome/google-chrome-old-version.php, installed it; translate seems to work again, I'll see if it crashes.
