Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Things went really wrong during my upgrade since I had to interrupt after not being abble to accept the license for microsoft fonts (the yes button was hidden behind the upgrade window and no way to access the "accept" button, my god). I rebooted using the recovery mode and tried to fix the broken packages...it managed to install the 10.10 kernels and I booted again using the 10.10 kernels and the recovery mode again. I managed to get the login prompt, but it looks like my user accout desappeared...any hints about how to proceed next?

Ubuntu will respond, eventually. I heard that it looks like it is frozen sometimes but it will respond (unless a fatal error). I would recommend uninstalling it and reinstalling. –  alexy13 Apr 27 '11 at 22:05
One more question : is it possible to do so using the prompt (this morning I managed to login)so I could give try to run update commands) without erasing the whole partition? –  Manu Martin Apr 28 '11 at 6:49
I eventually managed recovering booting with the recovery mode, doing a dpkg and installing updates with the /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades files provided by the maintainer (I was asked which /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades files I was willing to use during the process). –  Manu Martin Apr 28 '11 at 8:51
This question should instead be filed as a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! Instructions here. –  jrg Feb 1 '12 at 18:18
