[Solved] Unable to update .ICEauthority error on booting

I received this error after installing updates and restarting the computer. It was nothing but a file-permission issue. You can easily fix it.

To solve it, type the follow these instructions:

Go to Application menu->Accessories->Terminal or press Alt+F2 and type gnome-terminal and press enter.

In terminal, type:

sudo chown username:username .ICEauthority

sudo chmod 0644 .ICEauthority

Replace username with your own username.

Restart your computer to check that the problem has been fixed.
