    It would appear that you've installed 17.04 and not 16.10. Or you installed 16.10 and then did an upgrade. – dobey Dec 7 '16 at 23:08

You may be running 16.10 but you have at least one package installed that comes from 17.04. lsb_release shows the content of /etc/lsb-release which is provided by package base-files and it shows you Ubuntu version. You can do the following command to better understand where it comes from:

apt-cache policy base-files

(apt-cache show base-files may provide some hints too)
