Again, there is no such thing as an "upgrade" or a "release" in terms of 
updates. It was *not* what you call "upgrade" that caused your problem. It 
was an update, not necessarily belonging to 4.7 at all, or it was not 
related to updates at all. There might also have been a kernel update on 
Sept. 14 and you didn't reboot since then. Which, for whatever reason lead 
to your problem. I think you do not know at all that your problem is 
related to "4.7", so stop telling so! Stop thinking in terms of 
"upgrades", there is just a continous line of updates that every half year 
or so gets a bit streamlined and "boxed" into a release.
