Bug Description

Had used Chrome Remote Desktop to connect to Ubuntu Desktop when I needed to access the GUI. After upgrade the screen doesnt display. Everything else works, am able to connect over SSH, but Chrome Remote Desktop alone doesnt work. Tried installing vnc, but got error saying dont have a Display running. Have tried switching from gdm3 to lightdm. Both doesnt work after upgrade.
