    Applied the steps for Ubuntu server 16.04 to 16.10 after 4 hours applying packages my system was totally unusable. I have xfce4 on it. after several hard reboots, the keyboard was totally ignored. had to restore from backups booting with live USB, a total headache. I had thought I would after 16.10 upgrade to 17.. ouch.

    won’t upgrade again :(

    The weird screen is a Virtualbox problem, not Ubuntu’s problem.

      Thanks for the quick and useful response. I hope users testing on virtual box who might encounter the same issue will not panic after reading this, bearing in mind the source of the problem.
