Can't advise on upgrade issue but on screenshot submitted you have a space between start and x when it should be startx. Did you try installing xinit and trying again?

Yes, the first time I typed "start x" incorrectly, then re-did with "startx".
So now when I restart the VM, it comes up with the animated "Z" logo and just hangs.

Not a biggie, guess I'll delete it, just curious why it failed.

If you are running a VM I would just create a separate VM. Thinking about it VM's usually create a VHD of about 25 Gb. I suspect the upgrade failed because of not enough space in the VM.

Perhaps. Thanks.
