Same here. I have Intel, not NVIDIA. I went to upgrade, it required the NVIDIA packages, and it ended up breaking Cinnamon, plus some of my games. I'm typing this from MATE because Cinnamon won't even start. I need to downgrade after posting this.
EDIT: Oh, I can't downgrade. Well now I'm stuck with a half-broken box. I guess it's my own fault for trusting the official repo to not break stuff. I've learned my lesson.
For anyone wondering, when I try to log into Cinnamon, I get this error: "failed to load session cinnamon"
If I try to play certain games, like S.C.O.U.R.G.E., for example, I get the error "Video mode set failed: Couldn't find matching GLX visual" in the terminal.
