After updating Ubuntu all menus and dock on desktop disappeared. Video drivers and Internet crashed. apt-get upgrade doesn't work because I have no connection.

What should I do?

Could it be possible that the upgrade failed for some reasons? Did you notice any error messages?

For your current situation I see at least two possible solutions:

  • Connect the affected system to the Internet and run apt-get dist-upgrade and/or apt-get install -f.
  • Save your data with the help of an external storage device (e.g. smartphone, USB stick) and reinstall.
