Hello Linux Community,

I recently updated my software manager and the computer went haywire. How? In the login screen, it would not wait long enough for me to type in my username and password before the screen goes blank and restarts. I am not a Linux guru, but a beginner that is fascinated with all Linux has to offer. My question is: Is there any Linux software that can search and import files that are still on the HD in import into Linux. I know there is software to take a picture of your system like system restore in Windows that comes with the Mint Distribution, but I was not successful in my ability to make it work. Amazing, after reinstalled mint, I can now make backups and put them in my dropbox. Thanks so much in advance for any advice you may have.

No, but there are commands to do so. Try in console
Code:
sudo apt-get -f install
first.
If that doesn't work,
Code:
sudo dpkg –configure -a
If still not functioning properly, remove locks
Code:
sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/lock && sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/lock
and try
Code:
sudo dpkg –configure -a
again. Then update
Code:
sudo apt-get update

Yes, do all the commands that sp331yi listed, and in that sequence.
