After update/upgrade Pi boots to blank screen

Fri Sep 25, 2015 10:08 pm

I installed the display and booted to the desktop. Within terminal, I issued the sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade commands. After they completed, I rebooted but now my Pi boots to a blank screen instead of the desktop.

What to do now? How can I get the Pi to boot to the desktop again?

Are you certain that your Pi SD card hasn't been corrupted in the update process? If you've got another SD card you can image a fresh copy of Rasbian to, it may be worth giving it a try.

Does an HDMI display work, can you SSH in?
