[Bug 1568341] Re: Boot hangs at: /scripts/local-premount/uswsusp


It is indeed not installed by default (at least I manually installed it
just now and broke my system. However I'm not sure I agree with this
being low, since installing it made my system completely unable to boot
(has kernels and .22 only) at least with any of the recovery
modes available in grub. At least the workaround for me was not that
simple, since it required making and booting from a rescue media to be
able to actually get into a situation where it was possible to remove
the package again.

If anyone else runs into this here were my steps for solving this:
1. Make a 16.04 installation disk (any live CD really) 
2. Boot this in the try/livecd mode
3. Create somewhere to mount the real root partition (e.g. "sudo mkdir /media/root")
4. Mount the root partition (e.g. "sudo mount /dev/sdaX /media/root")
5. chmod into the root partition (e.g. "sudo chmod /media/root")
6. Remove the package (e.g. "sudo apt-get remove uswsusp" )
7. Reboot
