So you're using an encrypted home/ partition?
It asks for a username and password to allow access to the partition?
If so, this might be irrelevant:
You might need to continue doing this:
If there was an update that made your system non-bootable and they have
fixed it in the repositories, you can use the Live CD to run apt-get to
get the new files to fix your system.
Boot the Ubuntu Live CD.
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
sudo mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
sudo mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc
sudo mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys
sudo chroot /mnt
If you have trouble accessing your network after chroot, you probably
use DHCP and can work around this by adding OpenDNS name servers to
your /etc/resolv.conf after you use chroot:
nameserver 184.108.40.206" -
/dev/sda1 not necessarily is your root directory's partition, see
However, _do not_ chroot and apt upgrade yet. Also _do not_ change the
_But_ instead mount and run
grep -i xenial /mnt/etc/apt/sources.list
