I'm very sorry for asking about this error in another question but all the solutions in here require for you to have internet. I only have wireless internet and when I am in that console the internet is not connected, therefore I cannot install, update or reinstall anything. I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 and I have the HP Pavilion 17-e020sq laptop (which has an intel graphics and a dedicated ATI one).

Also I checked how to connect to wifi from terminal but it seems for connecting to internet from terminal I have to first be connected to internet and download a bunch of stuff.

It's pretty disappointing that this is still happening in this year's Ubuntu...

did you installed the xserver-xorg-video-ati driver package? –  Dumindu Mahawela Jul 17 at 0:59

I fixed it, thanks guys! What I did was to go to recovery mode, enable networking, press yes, the terminal appears on the bottom half of the screen, I pressed ctrl + C then after a few seconds the desktop appears... the first thing I do is to install the ati driver, restart, and now it works! –  spauny Jul 17 at 1:16
