All share options are greyed out, used to work


How can I share files and folders?
As you can see, I no longer can.

I was trying to get minidlna working better, so installed webmin as it has a module. But, it is no good, the server goes invisible.
So I looked at the share options, trying to share a folder using smb, but I can not.
So I am stuck.
Code:
scott@scott-P5QC:~$ smbtree
Enter scott's password: 
WORKGROUP
	\\SCOTT-P5QC     		scott-P5QC server (Samba, Ubuntu)
		\\SCOTT-P5QC\Pictures       	
		\\SCOTT-P5QC\Videos         	
		\\SCOTT-P5QC\HP-LaserJet-4000	HP LaserJet 4000 Series
		\\SCOTT-P5QC\IPC$           	IPC Service (scott-P5QC server (Samba, Ubuntu))
		\\SCOTT-P5QC\print$         	Printer Drivers
	\\LR-PC          		
		\\LR-PC\Users          	
		\\LR-PC\testshare      	
		\\LR-PC\Recorded TV    	
		\\LR-PC\Public         	
		\\LR-PC\pictures       	
		\\LR-PC\IPC$           	Remote IPC
		\\LR-PC\E$             	Default share
		\\LR-PC\C$             	Default share
		\\LR-PC\ADMIN$         	Remote Admin
	\\BOAT2PC        		
scott@scott-P5QC:~$
Looks like there are some shares still on the PC. By the way, WEBMIN DOES NOT SEE THESE SHARES!
I have had to do battles with samba before so I have PTSD regarding sharing in ubuntu.
Anyway I feel like nuking the OS and installing ver17.

Is there any hope? Go ahead laugh all you want.

I am going to 16.10, then 17.04 then 17.10
Too many software issues sticking with the LTS release.

Well, I managed to totally kill it, foo-bared, nuked. The upgrade failed in the middle. Oddly it logged me out of gnome to a login prompt while doing the upgrade to 16.10
It went all wonky on the screen, then logged me out. Hard drive activity fell off to zero. I logged in and I got a huge flashing cursor and those 4 moving login dots but they were really large.
I suppose nvidia driver issues.
Makes me glad 16.04 was hosed, it was giving me lots of grief.
I rebooted and am in windows and downloaded 17.10 from here

Running on 17.10 now. yes it is beta still.
A lot of the gnome extensions do not work.

Oddly, gparted fails to start.
Code:
scott@scott-MS-7596:~$ sudo gparted
[sudo] password for scott: 
Created symlink /run/systemd/system/-.mount → /dev/null.
Created symlink /run/systemd/system/home.mount → /dev/null.

Chrome is working fine.
I installed gnome, and am installing kaffeine, and my shares are back.

I cant run any program as sudo, like gedit and gparted so far.

Solved by upgrading the OS!
