Open a terminal by pressing ctrl + alt + t and type (take care of spaces):

sudo dpkg --configure -a

the system ask you for your user password, so type it then press enter...
Note: you will not receive any screen chars back when you type in the requested password

Then you can fully upgrade your system with this commands:

sudo apt-get install -f

sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get autoremove
