I have Ubuntu 16.10 (although the same happened on 16.04) on a dual boot with Windows 10. I noticed some time ago that my
kern.log file was getting pretty big (10GB or more) so I decided to check it. The same error seems to be repeating every second or less:

I have tried adding to the grub
pci=noaer but it keeps popping up. I am using a ASUS Laptop with an Nvidia Geforce 920M. Maybe that's the reason?
