If you need help ask a professional, then act upon their advice.
Anything less and you're just wasting peoples time.

I was going from 11.10 to 12.04.
Given that I couldn't think of anything better to do I restarted it manually and it was fine.
Only thing now is how to get the screensaver set.
Out of curiosity though, what happened?

Dunno what happened  ???

If I were you, I'd check that your software sources (/etc/apt/sources.list) have all been changed to precise from oneiric .. including any PPA's you've added (easiest to check these in Synpatic .. which you'll have to install).

Then and ONLY then .. run:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Screensavers .. to add Xscreensavers back into 12.04 .. see here:
