For the past couple days, following an attempt to update the OS, my computer shows this on boot-up:

The only reason I'm using it right now is that I booted up from an older version, but I've had problems with installing new version before, and also getting error messages like this:

I believe I've also had problems removing old ones through the terminal.

Anyways, what's the best route at this point?

EDIT:

Understanding it as a kernel panic, I managed to get some info on my boot files. Here's what came up.

 => Grub2 (v1.99) is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks at sector 1 of 
    the same hard drive for core.img. core.img is at this location and looks 
    in partition 112 for .
