Ubuntu: OS collapsed after installing Ubuntu 13.10


I upgraded my Ubuntu from 13.4 to 13.10. There was a system hang at the time of installation and I had to force-shutdown by pressing the power key. When I try to login, I see that the total OS has collapsed now. I am not able to open any folder or file.

How should I fix it?


You can't open files or folders but you can log in? That's what I get from the question.

Try pressing Ctrl+Alt+F2 this should take you into a terminal where you can log in.

From here run:

sudo dpkg --configure -a  


sudo apt-get dist-upgrade  

And for good measure (not sure if you need it but it can't hurt)

sudo apt-get upgrade  

Hopefully this should solve it.
