Ubuntu 16.04, ViM and broken plugins
If you have moved to Ubuntu 16.04 you can find out that your old ViM stuff is not working – Some plugins are broken. This is due to the change in python interpreter for ViM ( https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XenialXerus/ReleaseNotes#VIM_defaults_to_python3 )
To fix this you have to use different package of vim, like vim-gnome-py2. If you’re like me and using ncurses version of vim you would go better with to vim-nox-py2 package.
sudo apt install vim-nox-py2 sudo update-alternatives --set vim /usr/bin/vim.nox-py2 sudo update-alternatives --set vi /usr/bin/vim.nox-py2
That should fix broken plugins.
