Bug Description

 Zombie files had my processor in slow motion from upgrade. After a fresh install I have no wifi option at all. I checked Ask Ubuntu & Ubuntu forum. They said to download some drivers. I used synaptic package manager cause it grabs the support drivers before installation. Both sets of drivers failed @ 90% of installation. The above titled error code popped up toward the end of installing the 2nd driver. The o.s. shut down while I was trying to type this too.
