Update to linux 4.4.0-45 boot-in not working

Following recent update by Ubuntu Mate I can no longer boot-in without using recover
I encrypted my harddrive when installing 16.10 and it worked beautifully, started up, put in password and away I went. Following recent updates when I boot up a new ubuntu window comes up, if I do not go into Advanced and then recovery for linux 4.4.0-45 there is just a blank screen. Can anyone help me out?

Hi @spinozassister,

try running “dpkg” per the update guide if you can get into recovery mode!:
