After upgrading ubuntu to 16 I get: lvmetad is not active yet; using direct activation during sysinit

The (google) proposed solution is not working, it only ruins my display resolution.

/etc/default/grub, change:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nomodeset" Then add this line:
GRUB_TERMINAL_INPUT="console serial" 
Run sudo update-grub and reboot for the changes to take effect.

The booting process stops.

ctrl+alt+F2 gives me a prompt The disks are mounted read-only

after login I do a:

mount -o remount, rw /

the booting continues and the systems sometimes starts normal.

Any hints to a working solution are appreciated


changed boot to upstart as default and everything is working okay now.
