Use CTRL+ALT+F1 to switch to a console. Login there. If you cant login, type your password in the logon dialog just to make sure the right characters are appearing and your keyboard isn't broken. Once you have confirmed, logon and then update again. However you should use dist-upgrade not upgrade.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

You'll probably get more updates installed. Also worth making sure you have everything that should be installed.

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop^

The caret (^) is important.

Once that's done, reboot and see if you can login.
