I have the same problem too I have ubuntu 16.04 on a duo boot with Windows 8. 
Updated my ubuntu on 13/04/18 and now am no longer able to connect to my 
phone's hotspot which would connect automatically before.
Anytime it tries to connect it keeps asking for the password.
Please help.

** Attachment added: "this is what I tried in the terminal but it gives same 
results no WiFi connection"

Title:
  Network Manager regularly thinks my wifi is a wired device

Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  When I boot up my network doesn't automatically connect.  I instead
  see when I click the network manager applet that it's got no Wifi
  devices listed.  It thinks my wireless card is an ethernet device.
  This isn't true and I have no ethernet devices in my system.

  When this situation happens if I issue /etc/init.d/network-manager
  restart it comes back up thinking it's a wireless device and happily
  associates with my saved SSID.
