Bug Description

Error occured while no update/upgrade was being performed. Auto reported by the system.

I was using Chrome 51 (some light sites, a WebGL app, facebook, the usual) and vlc when the system hung for about 3-4 minutes. When the system started responding again, the font's looked a bit off in Chrome, no noticeable change in rest of the system.
