I updated eOS and the AppCenter told me to restart. I had uninstalled some applications prior to running the update.
Now I only get a black screen after the eOS logo splash screen during bootup. When I force shutdown using the power key, I see the eOS logo again.
Did I uninstall critical applications? I don't remember what I uninstalled. How can I fix this?
Also, if I select the following from the grub menu:
Advanced Options for elementary -> linux kernel 4.4.0-81(recovery) -> resume normal boot
It boots up fine and I can login but the performance is sluggish. Everything lags.
