When you upgrade, I would strongly recommend following this guide to get 
drivers working properly again:

This will ensure 3D support works and stop any driver crashes. The 
driver bug was in fact NVIDIA's fault, and they will have to fix it, 
although the responsibility lies party with Canonical for not having 
checked the drivers beforehand.
