System Crash During Updates, Now Software Won't Launch

Post by chemikalguy »

I got a notification that there was a software update, so I clicked it, and while it was running the system crashed and rebooted. I logged back in, thinking everything was ok, but found that I many applications won't launch, including the MATE Terminal, Firefox, Iridium, Software Update, Software Station, etc. I noticed that even the network icon doesn't show up in the top right corner of the screen like it used to.

Is there a way to save this system, or am I going to be stuck having to reinstall it from scratch again. This is my third attempt at getting a stable system going, and I thought I was on the right path. As a fairly new 'nix user, this is making me want to throw up my hands in frustration and give up. If anyone can offer guidance on repairing the damage, I would really appreciate it. For background, the system is running on VMWare 6.0, has 2 CPUs, 8GB of memory, and 60GB of hard disk space.
