    Good luck...
    Never upgrade your working system to the newest release without thorough testing on the actual hardware you will be running it on.
    Never perform a system update in a live session
    Installed Ubuntu Touch 1.0 on my Nexus 7. And loving it!

    your problem might be because of some change in your partition table information. you can try booting into linux using a live CD and then doing:

    Code:
    fdisk -l
    choose option x (extra functionality (experts only)) and enter.
    then select f (fix partition order) and enter.
    then select option w (write table to disk and exit), and enter.
    Don’t do anything else unless you know what you are doing.

    Once you have noted down your linux and swap partitions, you should verify that that grub menu.lst shows the correct boot information.

    Code:
    vim /boot/grub/menu.lst
    Otherwise, you need to setup grub again providing the correct boot partition information. Assuming, your linux is installed in /dev/sda6, use
    Code:
    $ sudo grub
     grub > root (hd0,5)
     grub > setup (hd0)
     grub > quit
