I have updated (via the Software Updater) Ubuntu 13.04 to Ubuntu 13.10. After it had finished the installation, the system required a reboot. When I reboot and load Ubuntu it will get stuck on the logo. I managed to boot into the recovery (both console and graphics mode) but I can't figure out how to repair it.

I have tried a sudo update-grub, but nothing different happened. I have also tried sudo apt-get install gnome, but the same result...

I am using a dual-boot Win7 + Ubuntu.

I have same problem, it seems it's a bug in Ubuntu 13.10. I recommend you trying these:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-next
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging

Then do:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gdm gnome-panel

also try "chkdsk /f" from windows.

if it doesn't work reinstall Ubuntu 13.10 it mostly happens when u boot into windows.
