Smile Unable to login to ubuntu


hello,
I was downloading and installing the update from ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04.While installing , there was a power failure and my system shut off.
I started again and it displayed me some errors.I sorted it out.Now when i try to login,i can't get past the login page.I can't install fluxbox from tty ,apt-get commands shows "E: and W: failed to fetch" errors.

Any help would be appreciated

Thank you

I sorted it out.I pressed the shift key on startup and.it opened a pink screen.I enabled network and then ran dpkg.that solved it for me.plus I am using 14.04 LTS :-)
