killall pulseaudio; rm -r ~/.config/pulse* ~/.pulse*

Wait ten seconds and reboot.

Is it OK?

Noticed that the bug report on this (#1533850) was immediately killed. But I really was experiencing a No Sound Issue after the last update. Just in case others also experience this issue (with settings being altered by an update without any helpful response.) As I utilize ANALOG Line Out for Audio and NOT SPDIF, It turned out that I had to open alsamixer in terminal, then set spdif output to MUTE. And them open Sound Settings in System Settings and Select LINE IN as Input Method in order to RECOVER audio output capabilities.

Remark: Your bug report was immediately set to "invalid" status, because you have created a bug in the area of "ubuntu-docs (Ubuntu Desktop Guide)".
If you experience a problem with sound, then it might be caused by a bug in Ubuntu's sound packages (e.g. alsa), but definitely not within the desktop guide.
In future, when you create another bug report, please select the right package to file the bug against.
