The splash screen comes up blank, and will not update.

Do you mean the update text area is blank or the whole window? If you see any buttons, click on "refresh" a few times. If the whole window is blank, then that is a whole new interesting issue. You may have to log out and log back in. I am just guessing, but it could stem from an update needing a reboot to get cranked up.

Please provide some more details. What splash screen don't come up? The one after GRUB? What did you do prior to this? dist-upgrade, driver installation etc?
