When you boot up, go into the grub boot menu and select Recovery Mode, it will boot you to a terminal. Then follow the instructions in that thread:

Also do

#sudo apt-get check

#sudo apt-get update
#sudo apt-get upgrade -y

Spell out your words. And re-opening a thread that's a YEAR OLD, isn't a good thing...especially since in your OTHER thread you say you're using Fedora, and this is for Ubuntu.
