  System won't boot after update

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After updating a clean install of Ubuntu 12.04LTS the computer hangs
  on the black boot screen.  Output to the screen is:

  swapon failed: device or resource busy
  mountall terminated with status 255
  mountall: problem activating swap
  initct1: event failed
  checking battery state  [OK]

  The computer just stays there until I ctrl+alt+delete and it reboots
  and does the same thing.  I re-installed 12.04 and it worked fine
  until I updated it again.  It says I need to reboot to install updates
  and then hangs again.
