Bug Description

I upgraded "server" i386 machine from 14.04.5 LTS to 16.04 LTS. I did upgrade from CLI (do-release-upgrade).

After upgrade, I have found that user home directory was encrypted. I don't remember there was a question on this topic during upgrade process. I am not happy that such change was done without my order. I am going to do rollback to 14.04.5. I did backup before upgrade....

I know that when I install fresh Ubuntu, there is a question about encrypted home directories and I answer NO. But there was not so question during upgrade and it seems like default answer was YES :-(

Hi,

Did you set disk-encryption when you installed 14.04? If yes, you wanted to drop this function when your system upgraded?

14.04 was not installed. System was updated from 12.04 to 14.04.
I am not sure if 12.04 was fresh installed or it was upgraded from 10.04.

I just restored system to version 14.04.5 and I see that home directory was encrypted in 14.04.5. I am sorry, I have no idea about this. It explains, why login take so long. I have to remove that feature.

This report is wrong and it can be closed. Home directory was encrypted in the past, not during upgrade to 16.04.

It looks like you upgraded from 12.04 to 14.04 to 16.04 and you do not
set home encrypted in 12.04 and 14.04, but you get the encrypted home
directory in 16.04. Right?
