    Just guessing , something to do with Nvidia drivers ?
    Do you have an Nvidia card or nvidia drivers already installed on the current kernel ?

    A possible solution seems to be here

    hxxps://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-common/+bug/292606

    1)Check if you have nvidia-common installed
    1a)If yes , uninstall it - #sudo apt-get remove nvidia-common
    1b)If no , install it - #sudo apt-get install nvidia-common - Then uninstall it
    2)Install your new kernel
    3)Re-install Nvidia drivers

    The people who say it works are installing an earlier kernel version than yours , suggest you read the above link before trying this

    Good luck
    Post back if it works

    Nvidia breaks the kernel every time you update. This is becasue is a .ko kernel driver so it must be rebuilt agaist the new kernel. You have to remove the module and reinstall the drivers after the kernel is built.

    Sword1, the issue is in your syntax. The --force all option should read --force-all
