    Upgrade to 15.5 workstation in ubuntu 16.4 crash and is impossilbe to recover

    juan0000 Lurker

      Automatic upgrade to 15.5 from 15.1 fails and destroy my previous installation. host OS: ubuntu 16.4

      It is not possible to run again any VMware installation. Neither the previous 15.1 bundle:


      Extracting VMware Installer...done.

      [AppLoader] Use shipped Linux kernel AIO access library.

      An up-to-date "libaio" or "libaio1" package from your system is preferred.

      Gtk-Message: 10:57:23.193: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"

      /usr/lib/vmware-installer/3.0.0/vmis-launcher: error while loading shared libraries: libpython3.7m.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory




      Nor the new one (I tray to use the workaround  Re: Workstation 15.5 for linux installation fails but the bundle is not recoginec, I can t acces it as sudo ./VMware etc the file is listed in my dir with ls but in white instead in green)


      Therefore I am not able to use anymore my workstation licensed product


      I am very disappointing that an official upgrade let me without my computer to work.
