Repairing fedora os with usb


I made the mistake of not waiting until a software update was finished , it was at 96% for way too long so i thought it had finished and hit the restart button, no all i get is a whte screen with an unhappy desktop face, saying that the computer cannot recover, can i Repair the damage with a repair tool from fedora, and if so, where can i get a download of such a tool?

I am using a recent version of fedora with recent updates.

also, is there a terminal command or two I can use to gain access to my pass word protected drives while i wait to do the rescue?
