Try to use the recovey mode option .

Boot and hold down [SHIFT] key until grub menu appears and select "Recovery Mode" , then select "Network" and then "Dpkg- Repair Broken Packages" . When repair finish , try to "Resume" and see.

Thanks

Then try to "Resume" and see if you can go to your Environment even with low graphics.

Open a terminal and do

~$ sudo apt-get update
~$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
~$ sudo apt-get install -f
~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a

Thanks

You will not upgrade to 12.10 with above commands .

The command

~$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

will upgrade your system packages (not the Ubuntu version-release) and will handle the dependencies (if exist).

Now with the "Network" Option in Recovery Mode you have a point here. Just tried to my installation and keeps "spitting" messages without ending. Is this a bug or something ? I'm not sure , BUT is not working as it should be.

You can try this BUT WRITE DOWN somewhere the commands , do not make mistake

Select the "Root" option and the write with order

~$ mount -o remount,rw /
~$ /etc/init.d/dbus start
~$ start network-manager

wait for a little and you will see the network messages. You can cut the messages with Ctrl+C keys combo.

Then test if your network is enabled with this command
~$ ping -c 3 8.8.8.8

must return something like
===============================================
PING 8.8.8.8 (8.8.8.8) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_req=1 ttl=46 time=94.7 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_req=2 ttl=46 time=96.1 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_req=3 ttl=46 time=94.0 ms
===============================================

If network is enabled and running , then write
~$exit

and you will return to the selection screen
then select "Dpkg-Repair Broken Packages" and follow the instructions. You have to interfere with y(es) or N(o) or d(etails).

Thanks

Does the system have a make and model?
What video chip do you use?

Give bellow commands again , carefully . I just did it and worked.

~$ mount -o remount,rw /
~$ /etc/init.d/dbus start
~$ start networking
~$ start network-manager

Wait 10-15 secs and then hit Ctrl+C to stop the messages (if any).

The network should be fired up and run this command to go back to window with selections

~$ exit

and select Dpkg - repair broken packages.

IF YOU HAVE ETHERNET cable , the is better to plugin.

Thanks
