I had not done updates in a while and finally let it install 92 updates. After the updates were finished gnome gives me an error saying some config file is corrupt or missing. The reason i don't have the exact code is i told to not delete the file and now it doesn't come back up.

is this a known issue? Some of the gnome icons have reverted to a generic icon and the user experience is all messed up. Most of my programs seem to be working however. any suggestions?
