Ok, Linux newb here, I was updatiing from Natty to the new Oneiric today at like 3 am, I had already downloaded all the packages and I was in the middle of installing them but then my laptop reset (I just disconnected it from the energy, it had plenty of battery should've kept working)
So now when I boot it tries to start ubuntu, from what I see loads most of the stuff but it doesnt give me a gui at the end, just a sort of terminal.
tells me my last login, welcomes me to ubuntu and says
679 packages can be updated
0 updates are security
I suspect those packages are the ones I had downloaded and was in the middle of installing? I suppose the easiest thing now to recovery my ubuntu install would be just to install those packages, but if you think there's a faster easier way please do tell me
