Linux upgrade stopped intranet from working "Forbidden You don't have permission to access"

Last Modified: 2015-06-30
Dutifully upgraded Linux on our Intranet site. At first I could not access home page, configured apache2.conf file as follows -

<Directory />
      Options FollowSymLinks
      AllowOverride None
      Require all granted

"Now, I can hit the home page (and open the WP-admin console) but when I try any links, I get
Not Found
The requested URL /URLNAME was not found on this server.
Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu) Server at intranet.goptions.co.uk Port 80"

Any ideas what is stopping me from seeing my pages? (or database?)
