I managed to login in console and I installed again all the latest updates. Everything is fine now, back to normal. :)

  • Curl + Alt + f1-f6 will spawn a try

  • My keyboard is not active here. The screen is black and the keyboard hasn't even started. Did that command give you a terminal? Jul 6 '16 at 22:44
