    12.04 screwed up update

    I accidentally shut down during an update. I rebooted, I immediately did a "sudo apt-get update" and sudo apt-get upgrade. My computer is working, but doing a few weird things. When I boot up, put my password, it shows the screen, but takes Unity an extra 10 seconds to come on. Also, when I move cursor through a drop down menu, it seems to try to re-size each selection or moves the menu in funny sort of way.

    Any ideas? Can I re-install the updates.

    Thanks,
    Ernie

    Erm... sounds to me like a FIUU (Failure In Updating Ubuntu). There are someways to go, but you would pretty much end up in a worse desktop than before, so the easy-way out is to reinstall Ubuntu.
