[ubuntu] Update manager on 1st March 2013 broke Ubuntu 10.04 on my PC

http://ubuntuforums.org – Update Manager started on my PC on 1st March stating Software updates are available for this computer. As is my normal practice I clicked Install updates and let it run to completion. This took a longish time. On rebooting Ubuntu, many lines appeared on a black screen and my computer hung with the Caps Lock and Scroll Lock indicator lights flashing. Fortunately I had taken an Acronis True image backup of the hard drive earlier on 1st March 2013 and I was able to restore the Ubuntu root partition. This successfully restored the root partition and Ubuntu (kernel 2.6.32-45-generic) booted OK. Loo (Hardware)
