My _guess_ is that the upgrade missed various packages when your
internet connection was interupted.

Boot to recovery mode. Once there select the dpkg menu item & let dpkg
finish loading/configuring any packages that may have been
corrupted/missed from the internet interuptions during the initial
upgrade. Repeat until dpkg no longer fetches/configures any packages.

When finished with that, continue to normal login. That also will put
you in text mode. However that's normal. Enter your username & password,

$ sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install -f
$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
$ sudo update-grub
$ sudo reboot

Boot into the standard kernel (not recovery mode) & see if all is
workiing now.
