When I was updating from 11.10, to 12.04, I cancelled because the computer froze. Now the update manager doesn't show an upgrade option. How do I upgrade? It said I could continue through a location I cannot remember. And it downloaded some files already. is their some command-line thingy or a location to continue the process?

You can continue the upgrade by running sudo dpkg --configure -a in a terminal.
