Problems after interrupting updates
I run Ubuntu 8.04. I had done a fresh install on my removable hard-drive and so when I started updates, I had almost 246 MB worth of them. I was running the updates when I had a power cut. I was almost half-way through (having downloaded around 130 MB of updates) but had to stop it and shut down. After the power returned and when I started up Ubuntu again, I only get a white screen and my cursor! I did a Ctrl+Alt+Backspace and logged into Failsafe Gnome and things are fine. In fact, I'm posting this thread through Firefox in Failsafe Gnome mode.
I'm wondering if the interrupted updates is the culprit. If I completely download and install ALL the remaining updates, will Hardy be back to normal? I can do the update and see it for myself in Failsafe mode, but just want to know why exactly I got that all-white screen!
