Have you thought about just doing a fresh install of 16.04 and keeping
the partition which is for /home (i.e. _not_ formatting it, just and
mounting it to /home) with all your data and be done with it?

Might be easier and quicker than trying to fix it.

Having said that, there might be a way in Ubuntu to install a package
group to get your desktop back, something like:

apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
