It most certainly could fix your issues, as there is no such confirmed bug with fingerprint sensor.
Please go to sammobile and ensure your bootloader matches the one in the newest firmware for your country.
Judging by the code at the end, it seems you are still on Lollipop Bootloader. Please use the search function to find out how to update your bootloader (see LineageOS 14.1 thread and search there first).
Well I think you should be able to do it without updating as long as you have root. I do recommend a newer ROM with updated security patch though.
For the issue you're currently facing, you need to insure that you have root privileges. Just post if you need any further help.
Make sure that you are on the newest TWIRP if going to N or O and also remember that its best to do a full wipe / formating data / clean install when going to a different Android version ( aka, MM, N, O).

MAKE SURE YOU READ ABOUT ANDROID MARSHMALLOW AND ITS CHANGES BEFORE FLASHING ROM.
- Settings doesn't always come up right away; may need to close it and grant root access on 2nd attempt
- "Contacts" ... give this screen ~10-15 minutes; if no action after 15 minutes, force reboot/battery pull
- Titanimum Backup issue? Reported - but no known resolution (looking into it).
Yeah! The more people that ask, the longer it will take!
This has been a chaotic week for me at work, plus I have end-of-the-month madness to deal with, so it dropped at a bad time (for me).
Hopefully I'll have builds done in the next 24 hours. I *may* post them as they finish building, probably at least the core KLTE build tonight or tomorrow morning after I build and flash/test it on my own device.
