*Platform:* I5 Laptop running Ubuntu 14.04.  Prolific PL2303 USB to 
Serial programming cable.

In the past, I have been able to access the UV-5R radio's configuration.

The laptop's OS is up to date as well as the Chirp Daily Builds

*Attempt to read radio's configuration:*

"Due to the fact that the manufacturer continues to release new versions 
of the firmware with obscure and hard-to-track changes, this driver may 
not work with your device. Thus far and to the best knowledge of the 
author, no UV-5R radios have been harmed by using CHIRP. However, 
proceed at your own risk!"

And then results in:

"could not open port /dev/ttyusb0: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 


Has this issue been seen by someone in the group and a could you share 
your insight?

I have searched the Ubuntu Forums and do not find a mention of this 
specific issue.  The closest thread involved an OS upgrade to 16.04 that 
required an uninstall of the Chirp program/App and a reinstall.  Since I 
appear to be dealing with a driver/dependency issue, I have not tried 
this approach.

I will be posting this text to the Ubuntu Forums as well.
