My whole freaking system won't boot
Hi, I'm brand new to Linux, just started using it a couple weeks ago. So far it's been smooth sailing, but last night I let synaptic install 83 updates, and when I rebooted this morning....it won't boot. It gives me the "Ok, doing whatever..." and then sits there. I let it sit for three hours. Nothing. Recovery mode does the same thing.
I assume this is because of the updates, but then shouldn't someone somewhere be having the same problem? How do I figure out what's going on and undo it?
