Ubuntu graphical desktop not displaying after upgrade

by Firstbass   Last Updated September 11, 2019 16:02 PM - source

I upgraded a Ubuntu machine from 14.04 LTS to 16.04 LTS. Now I get the login screen for the graphical interface (lightdm) but once I provide login credentials it just clears to the background and doesn't open my user desktop. I'm not sure where to look to troubleshoot.
