Started upgrade from 12.4 to 13.04. Computer locked up during upgrade now it won't finish the upgrade. It keeps saying this: something is using the system and cannot unlock to finish the install.

I did the upgrade over night as to not disrupt anything. When I woke up I noticed that the computer was locked up to the point that nothing would operate. So had to do a hard reboot to get the computer to start working. When it started I tried to check if the entire upgrade finished by going to check for software updates. When the screen came up it said that the upgrade was only partial and that is when It keeps saying this: something is using the system and cannot unlock to finish the install –  Andrew Petrakis Apr 27 '13 at 22:54
