I just updated my Intel Graphics Driver using Intel-Graphics-Update-Tool and after finishing the update I rebooted my laptop for the updates to take effect. Now am stuck at the Linux Lite Logo with "Waiting for network configurations.... and the 60s more". After this I get a blank screen that stays that way forever.
I have tried getting some solutions but none works.
The startx only works with sudo through the terminal.
Someone kindly help, I need the desktop.

I am afraid you have broken your system and most probably need to reinstall. The tool you have used to "update" the display driver has been deprecated by Intel few months ago: https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads/update-tool

Use a repo to add drivers. Its great. Guy has been at since 2011 and it just works and updates often.
