No, it is a better command similar to
sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu desktop
by putting back what's missing to get the desktop back instead of 
reinstalling back what's not missing.

Note the video part may also be responsible for not getting to the 
desktop and that's why it is necessary to test with 'nomodeset'. But of 
course that may or may not be the case in yours.

What are you waiting for?
