    Stuck At Ubuntu Booting

    Learn how to fix a broken or unusable Ubuntu OS without having to resort to the option of reinstalling Ubuntu and losing all of your files and applications in this Tecmint tutorial.

     

    Over the course of time, your system can be plagued with errors that can render it broken or unusable. A classic example is the inability to install software packages, update or upgrade the system. Other times, you may encounter a black screen during login preventing you from accessing your system.

    An extreme fix would be to reinstall your Ubuntu OS right away, but this means that you’ll lose all your precious files and applications. Instead of taking that path, a few fixes can come in handy with a Live CD or USB bootable medium.

    Let’s check out a few solutions that can help you fix broken Ubuntu OS without reinstalling it.
