Can I uninstall the Ubuntu 13 upgrade? It stopped about half way through the upgrade and now I get all kinds of nuisance errors. Worst of all, the software center no longer functions, so I need to know how to do this through the terminal or some other way.

Try running sudo apt-get update update && sudo apt-get install -f && sudo dpkg --configure -a This would install any missing dependency and reconfigure all your packages. – Dan May 7 '13 at 8:43

I'm afraid there is no way to uninstall the upgrade. But you could succeed finishing the upgrade process by typing following via the terminal:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
