I'm using ASUS GL552VW. It has Intel HD Graphics 530, and Nvidia Geforce 960M Graphics Processors. As using intel graphics will be a power saving option for me, I was trying to install the Intel Propriety Graphics Driver in it.

Usually, it says "elementary loki" is unsupported. So I edited the /etc/lsb-release file to emulate "Ubuntu 16.04".

Now it's stuck here for a long time.

Intel Graphics Update Tool

Here is the debug info:

I had similar problem (but I have Intel® HD Graphics 5500).
So thanks to your suggestion I faked the /etc/lsb-release with following contents:

DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=16.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=xenial
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 16.04 LTS"

During the first time I had problems with PPAs, therefore I had to disable all sources marked as 'broken'. I have run the command sudo intel-graphics-update-tool which gave me possibility to see all broken sources in one shot.

After having done that the installation was successful with following report:
