Bug Description

I have recently updated from 15.04 to 15.10 , now the network manager icon is missing from the top task bar and i am not able to chose wifi networks . i tried ti open the network settings and is shows an message ' The system network services are not compatible with this version'. I am able to access internet sometimes but don't know which wi-fi I am currently connected to. I have referred online and tried to downgrade the network manager but event that didn't fixed the problem so I upgraded it back to the latest.

On a fresh install, I have the same issue of the icon not appearing. I am able to access the network settings though.

It's happened with me on Ubuntu 15.10 on Dell XPS 15 and to resolve I install indicator-applet-complete.
