I have searched quite a lot, but it seems that I am the only unfortunate.
Last night I chose to upgrade (via Internet install) to 11.10 from my 11.04, but after the upgrade, Ubuntu just doesn't boot.
I was expecting some glitches, but never expected a complete crash.
My only fault, I left it to upgrade over the night, unattended, and went to sleep. Not knowing what might have happened.
I am attaching a screenshot, which might help knowing what's going on. . (Since I couldn't use system's internal imaging system as no OS was booted, I shot it from my phone's camera. I hope it's clear enough to read. please let me know if you need more details.)
Is there any way out?
As per instructions, I went to tty2, and ran
sudo apt-get update which showed following errors:
I then ran
sudo apt-get upgrade and saw it processing many files. after a while when it quit, I restarted the system, but its still stuck at 'checking battery state'
sudo apt-get update still shows these errors, but
upgrade says the system is upgraded
0 files to remove, 0 to change
