In the middle of upgrade (from 13.04 to 13.10) the download stopped (for 2 hours, I was sure it was not going anywhere) and when even Firefox stopped working I was forced to reboot and, voila, my Satellite is blacked out. I tried "safe mode" and "repair damaged package" but no effect. (I can see these screens, in that sense it is not a total blackout and Satellite is TRYing to do something and give me lots of data but they dont make much sense to me) Could anyone suggest where I can go from here?
This is the 3rd consecutive upgrade fiasco for me upgrading, each time it gave me headache and it is affecting my view of Linux. Why does the upgrade have to be this "high risk" thing to do? Why cant I revert to the original state if I wasn't successful?
Anyway, any help much appreciated
