  fglrx-updates-core 2:15.200-0ubuntu4: fglrx-updates-core kernel module
  failed to build

Status in fglrx-installer-updates package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The default kernel 3.19.0-26-generic in Lubuntu 64-bit AMD64 seems to
  have trouble with the additional restricted drivers from AMD / ATI,
  despite being listed as compatible. This doesn't happen to me in any
  other Ubuntu distribution or fork, only Lubuntu.

  What happens is that the driver is in fact installed but isn't reading the configuration of my actual card installed. It gives the maximum resolution settings of 4k, which this specific card isn't capable of at all. I've tried the old hold over of using; 
  sudo amdconfig -f --initial

  That normally will fix my problem after I reboot the machine but in
  this case, it does not. I know my card is 100% compatible with this
  driver from AMD as it works in Xubuntu 15.04 32-bit 686 & 64-bit
  x86_64 kernels flawlessly.
