upon boot the machine gives the normal GRUB menu:
Debian GNU/Linux
Advanced options for Debian GNU/linux

Click the 1st one

saying
Loading etc
Loading initial ram disk

then a list of checks

See 'systemctl status NetwrokManager-wait-online.service' for details.
then a list of things starting all [OK]

and then nothing happens

Switching the machine off and re-starting it into the advance option i
get some root access and i see al my files.I am not able to connect to the internet
When trying to do something like apt-get update
the system returns that a shared library libapt-pkg.so.4.12 is not
installed.
but I have no internet access so I cannot either find the lib or install
it. And so I cannot update the system and it feels like a catch 22
I could really do with some help


I don't know, but maybe I can help with the network, do an '#ifconfig -a' to get the name of your interface and then '#ifconfig (name-of-interface) up' and see if that helps get things going.
