    And now when i try to log in, i get the blue screen and it goes back to the login later on. I have tried using terminal command S to delete my profile and get my laptop to login automatically and that did not work.

    I tried to go into safe mode and restart the laptop to see if the update would start again but it has not. I had to shut down the laptop because the update was taking longer than an hour! It has not move one inch from the progress bar.

    Anyway I would love to know what i have to do in order to get the update to start again, I will surely leave it on for a day if i have to, I just need the update to complete itself, or to even cancel it.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm afraid it's unlikely you'll get the upgrade to complete now. Time to do an archive + install (which should preserve your data - albeit you DO have a backup, YES?)
