Can't boot to desktop after upgrade to 17.04

Upgraded to 17.04 yesterday and since then I have been unable to get to the
desktop unless I use the recovery mode. I have tried
apt -f install
dpkg --configure -a

Nothing seems to work.

Here is my Xorg.log <a href="https://pastebin.com/ehcDGent" title="https://pastebin.com/ehcDGent">https://pastebin.com/ehcDGent</a>

To me the log looks like you have an nvidia graphics card in your
machine and the nvidia driver doesn't want to load correctly. Maybe the
upgrade didn't properly install the nvidia driver. Therefore I would
suggest to reinstall the nvidia driver (in recovery mode).

If that doesn't work, you could uninstall the nvidia driver and reboot.
That should then start the nouveau driver and you should at least get a
working desktop. Maybe you could also expeiment with the other versions
of the nvidia driver, but I have no idea if that would help.

That's what I ended up doing. Seems to be OK now.

Just need to fix everything else that seems to have broke in the upgrade now.
