Today morning’s upgrade of libc6 cashed my laptop’s OS! Here is the trick to recover the OS

  1.  Boot from live cdrom
  2. Mount root-partition mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
  3. cp –parents `dpkg -L libc6-i686 | xargs` /mnt/
  4. cp –parents `dpkg -L libc6 | xargs` /mnt
  5. chroot /mnt
  6. apt-get update
  7. apt-get upgrade
