Bug Description

Upgrade failure.
But system is still running ...

Edit (of 2016-02-25):
Package in question is installed. So what's the issue? Is it just a wrong message I received from the system? (It was telling me that my system would be corrupted and probably unusable ... I'm happy it is not the case ...)

Edit (of 2016-02-26):
Because of some sound issues I applied following command to reinstall recent kernel: sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-$(uname -r)
That fixed my sound problems so far.

I got only the "some packages did not ..." "System might be unusable" messages. Since I am not experienced in Ubuntu I do not know what to do to get more specific information. Nor do I have a workaround. Afraid to reboot.
