Bug Description

After upgrading to 16.04, I had no access to wifi. It only worked as root. I fixed it by adding my user to the new "systemd-network" group.

The existing users (or those in group netdev) should be automatically be added to "systemd-network" group during upgrade.

Fix it? Go to user manager, find the user and add the group specified above.

I've been affected too.
"sudo adduser my_user systemd-network" worked for me ! Thanks
