Same here, it starts the Ubuntu OS, I can see the mouse cursor in the middle and my desktop wallpaper but the entire dash menu and top taskbar is missing. Happened after I restarted from applying the latest updates.

EDIT: Fixed the problem by booting into recovery mode and then repairing all packages. On screen it said my system was up to date but asked me if I wanted to continue with the upgrade, I typed 'y' pressed Enter and had a whole list of repeating "~" followed by the word "END". I manually turned off my computer and restarted, booted into Ubuntu and loaded my dash and desktop with no problems.
