  Kubuntu upgrade from 15.10 to 16.04  fails

Status in ubuntu-release-upgrader package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After upgrade to kubuntu 16.04, desktop is no longer drawn.   X
  starts, but no desktop, just a blank black screen.

  System previously was kubuntu 15.10.  Only thing "interesting" about
  it was the selection of using the nvidia proprietary drivers,
  installed through the ubuntu "additional drivers" updater.

  Unfortunately, I'm not surprised.  I don't think I've ever seen an
  ubuntu upgrade succeed for a minor release less than .3  (ie:  maybe
  16.04.03's upgrader would have worked)

  Going to check home directory backups (redo if necessary), wipe and do
  a fresh install tonight.
