Maybe you can try a fresh install. A fresh install is always better than an update. Maybe you can try Hardy when it is released. :)

try
lsb_release -a

How did you upgrade? the clincher would be to check your sources.list file. post the output of
cat /etc/apt/sources.list so we can see what repos you are using.

if you ever do get the urge to do a fresh install create a /home partition. there is an article somewhere here on creating an new partition, copying the home partition to it then editing the fstab to point to the new /home.

how exactly did you do the update?
