My 14.04 machine received the gcc update after the -116 update, just as
others have noted.
I resolved this by booting into -112 then:
sudo apt-get purge linux-headers-4.4.0-116 linux-headers-4.4.0-116-generic
sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-xenial
And then rebooted into -116 with everything working.
I think this is easier and less likely to run into later problems than
trying to manually rebuild DKMS modules.
$ gcc --version
