Additional Information: There were 22 Upgrades along with this update. From what I could see of the Terminal Screen as the upgrades quickly scrolled by., these eight Upgrades were calling for functions which are 'No longer Supported', and were 'falling back to default'. -- Additional question: Do these Eight upgrades Need to be Updated by Canonical/Ubuntu Themselves, to reflect the Current Ubuntu 16.04 LTS in order to implement correctly?

For diagnostic purposes please provide the output of the following commands

uname -a
lsb_release -crid
apt-get --simulate dist-upgrade

? Do I use 'Mesa Utilities' for Open GL rendering? I believe that I do. I use the Linux Native GZDoom Engine. As my Antique ATI 9600 PRO 8X AGP card is Open GL capable. Just NOT GL2 or GL3.

Properly Filed as a separate Question:

I keep getting re-prompted by Software Updater to install the latest Ubuntu 16.04LTS update
if this ‘libllvm5.0’ which the update installs is autoremoved as prompted:

There is a slight difference between "apt-get upgrade" and "apt-get dist-upgrade", which is important in this case.

One of the upgraded packages apparently has a new dependency (libdrm-common).
"apt-get upgrade" does not automatically install additional packages, but "apt-get dist-upgrade" does.

I recommend that you execute

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get --purge autoremove

(This will also remove the unneeded libllvm package)

Thursday, January 04, 2018. 01:30AM PST. Just got another new update. Ubuntu Base, and, GZdoom, Several (4 or 5) WINE updates. (I currently use WINE primarily to run my Deep97 and DeepBSP Map Editor programs). This solved the MESA upgrade problems., and also when I ran 'sudo apt autoremove --purge' prompted that it would remove libllvm4.0 rather than libllvm5.0.

This Solved the Problem.

This is also why I generally file these reports as 'Ask a question' not knowing whether they are proper bugs, or something that the next update will solve.
