So today I decided to upgrade from Ubuntu 12.04 all the way to 13.10, as my laptop has the recommended specs. I upgraded from 12.04 to 12.10 just fine, but when I upgraded to 13.04, it was 1:50 AM, and I left it running overnight so I could catch some Z's.
When I checked on it this morning, it said that a bunch of errors had occurred, and so I just clicked close. Then it said it finished the upgrade with some errors, and so I restarted my laptop. When it booted, it brought me to the system recovery screen, and I did everything available to fix the problems there.
I then restarted my laptop again, but when it booted, it was just a black screen, then became a terminal and nothing more. I've now erased 13.04 and 12.10 and put 12.04 back on my laptop. Any ideas/suggestions?
I used the update manager to upgrade distros. Does that have anything to do with it?
