Problem Upgrading Kali Linux Persistence USB


Hello everyone,
yesterday i downloaded kali linux and installed it on my usb as presistence
i ran the apt-get update command and it downloaded somethings. then i ran the apt-get upgrade -y command and it said that it had to do 902 upgrades so i left it be and it literally took 9 hrs to download and unpack and then it got stuck at one Unpack so i pressed Ctrl + C and it stopped. i shut it down and now when i try to boot it, it give me a black screen with cursor and when i click it on something it goes to the boot text and just shows that.
what is the problem?

sorry for bad english.

from grub, boot into recovery mode.
might have to hold down shift (after bios messages) to see the grub menu.
