    I launch on Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS, the Intel Graphics update Tool fo Linux OS and I have this 2 fails.

    I regret that the page of your site does not indicate in advance that I would have this problem and explicitly discouraged for Ubuntu 16.04.1, 16.04.2,16.04.3.

    Is my system broken ? what should I do summarily to return to the normal ?
