Hi Juan Carlos Reyes!

It might be nice to know what kind of computer you are useing, version of
Ubuntu, why and how you updated.  This could give us a better base to help

For now I would recommend the Ubuntu start guide:

Specifically the sections within Rescue Mode.

Also google "mounting root file system ubuntu" just for fun.

Sometimes doing a "control c" (holding down the Ctrl key and tapping the c
key) will bypass the hung part of the script.  Sometimes it is good to allow
ten minutes for the thing to actually cycle trough on it's own.

Good Hunting!
