You never did mention any info about your computer....!    I found an 
equivalent program to list your hardware (hardinfo) but it uses a gui 
screen so it would work for you are the moment.

Try this:   if you can boot, and then get to a terminal screen (where 
you did the update/upgrade),   issue the following:

service sddm stop        <---  shuts down the sddm program

service lightdm start     <---  starts lightdm instead of sddm

If there is a problem with sddm, that would give you a try with a 
different window manager.

But this must be something peculiar to you graphics setup... so please 
give us that info...  (but maybe you don't know what hardware you have)
