Bug Description

I tried to upgrade to 16.04 from 14.04, following a system prompt.
First I got a "third party sources disabled" error. It said "some third party entries in your sources.list were disabled." I closed the dialog box and upgrade resumed.
Then after a while I got a "could not install the upgrades" error dialog box. It said "the upgrade has aborted. Your system could be in an unstable state. A recovery will run now (dpkg-configure-a)".
Well, the upgrade may have been aborted but my machine is running 16.04 now.
It is somewhat unstable as I get these error messages on reboot and some features of the system are not available and some are not responding.
I can add that I am a low level Linux user. Ever since I installed 14.04 a few years ago I haven't tweaked it or touched in any way, except for installing updates.
