Indeed. Your description implies that you're not near the server and
don't have a networked KVM on it. I don't recommend remotely upgrading
without that.

The best possible outcome (which doesn't involve you going to the
colocation room) is that the server is running an fsck right now and
will come online once that's done. Otherwise, you need to get on a
keyboard and monitor and see what is happening.
