I tryed updating my ubuntu to the new version today, and it suddenly crashed. I then just had to reboot in mid-installation. Now i cannot even log in anymore, it just shows the hour on top of the screen and it is not giving me the option to log in. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

You can try going in to a shell by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 and login with your user name and pass, then type sudo do-release-upgrade and follow the instructions. That will hopefully try to resume the upgrade.

If it's says No new release found then try sudo apt-get upgrade and follow the instructions. That will try to fix the broken packages.

Hope it helps.
