Bug Description

package: bamfdaemon 0.5.3~bzr0+16.04.20160824-0ubuntu1

The PC randomly crashes with no apparent reason. I can't provide further information as I can't seem to know what is the problem myself. I have tried to reinstall the system multiple times. The IT department also check on the hardware and they said no failures could be found.

What I can say is that the screen just freezes and I can only move the mouse. The keyboard is unresponsive and I can't go to the virtual terminal. Num. Lock can't be turned off (basically, the keyboard froze also). The only way is to force restart the system. It happens frequently (3 to 4 times a day).

Refering to the following topic: https://askubuntu.com/questions/558446/my-dconf-gsettings-installation-is-broken-how-can-i-fix-it-without-ubuntu-reins

After applying Dmitry's fix, I was able to update the PC and install updates. It fixed the frequent freezes and crashes that I used to have.
