I recentry have had my system upgraded from Deepin 15.3 to Deepin 15.4 via the command:
  1. sudo apt-get upgrade
Copy the Code
After everything was downloaded and installed I rebooted the system and to my surprise the when I logged in all I am having is a blank desktop with no dock. Because of this I am failing to launch any applications. I am not even able to launch the terminal through the short-cut
  1. CNTL - ALT - T
Copy the Code
How to I get to have the dock show up? I seriously do not want to format the machine just to fix this problem.

Press ctrl + alt + f1 to ppen a new tty session (console). Log in with your user name + password, then run sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade again

Hi, updating from 15.3 to 15.4 is actually:
  1. sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Copy the Code

Maybe you can also try to fix you problem with:
  1. sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get install dde --reinstall
Copy the Code

According to your problem, sadly you can only type commands at black terminal screen, activated by pressing
  1. CTRL+ALT+F1
Copy the Code
. It requires you to type in login name (account name) and password (won't show itself on the screen when typing ) at first.
Well, don't forget type
  1. sudo shutdown -r now
Copy the Code
to reboot your computer.
