You can't usually update through two versions of ubuntu, so you may have some problems even if you do get things running. Other users who have tried what you have done may have other comments to make.

All I would suggest you do now is make absolutely certain that you have all your personal files backed up to an external disk of some sort using a live CD. You can then keep trying to get things running again with your current system, but I think you may end up having to reinstall the new version from scratch, and if that's the case perhaps wait for 9.10, if you are able, or use the beta version already available.
