Angry bug fixes bu&(^*%%* up system???


I just installed mandrake 9.2 it was fine I got it set up mail, internet ect ect all working well so....... I decided I would update ya know download all the bug fixes and security updates so I did this it took 2 hours and wham!

My system died!

I could not use the GUI at all no menu nothing!

I then had to reisnatall and the keyboard did not get installed.
So now I have reinstalled for the 3rd time tonight.

Can some one please tell me why the bug fixes stuffed me system?
Why did the keyboard not get installed on the second install?

Is it common to have these silly prob with linux?

Thank you.
