My guess: The partial Windows upgrade killed your grub installation.
Use a LiveCD to reinstall grub. There are 1000000 cookbooks on the internet.

It would help if you indicated which of the hundreds of available Linux distributions you are using. Cancelling the upgrade is obviously going to cause serious problems. You indicate you "tried all kinds of things" to resolve this issue but neglect to mention any of them. Were you doing an MBR boot or UEFI with the Linux system you had?
