Upgraded and ubuntu does not load

Asked by Amy Gagliardo on 2012-11-13

I upgraded my netbook and didn't realize it was not plugged in and left it on overnight to finish installing.

This morning it was dead so I plugged in and nothing loads. I do have to enter my password, but after that nothing.

I also restarted and nothing.

I was able to get to here from holding the power button and getting the options to restart, shut down, hibernate, etc

boot to root recovery mode and run:

sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock;sudo dpkg --configure -a

Hopefully it will make the upgrade continue.

Can you help with this problem?
