[Bug 1577069] Re: upgrade from 14.04 LTS failed

*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1069133 ***

Reviewing the files from your upgrade attempt you seem to have enabled
the xorg-edgers-ppa.  This will prevent the upgrade as that PPA contains
different versions of packages essential to Ubuntu.  The page,
https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa, contains details on to
how to revert to the official Xorg packages.  Thanks.
