    I got this:
    Warning: Missing argument 2 for wpdb::prepare(), called in /home/ianc1499/public_html/blog/wp-content/plugins/category-icons/category_icons.php on line 1047 and defined in /home/ianc1499/public_html/blog/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 990
    Now the dashboard has gone, the blog doesn't display properly, all widgets have vanished.
    Can I reinstall 3.4.2? It worked fine...

    Can you log in? The category-icons plugin is not compatible with WordPress 3.5

    Fixed it by uploading 3.4.2 over top.

    Will wait until the bugs are all ironed out before I upgrade toi a newer version.

    Automatic upgrade SHOULD either warn users about potential problems first, or fix them.

    Your bug probably was the category-icons plugin not being compatible with this new version.

    Automatic upgrade SHOULD either warn users about potential problems first, or fix them.

    WordPress warns you before an upgrade: "Important: before updating, please back up your database and files. For help with updates, visit the Updating WordPress Codex page."

    3.5 is a train wreck. The link adds don't work. I just lost an entire article when it froze trying to add a link. The link pop up showed up all the way at the bottom of the scree. Everything is moving in slow motion and erroring out. how do I get back to 3.4? I wish you guys would stop putting out updates every 5 minutes, especially when they are full of bugs which cost us hours of lost work and time.

    I don't have time for creating my own topic. I'm too busy recreating all the work 3.5 just cost me.

    Sorry, @keesiemeijer, not only did I not see that warning anywhere, but it clearly is insufficient, since the problem was caused by a plugin, not the database.

    Besides, a lot of WP users are not techies - they won't know how to backup data or what to do when the upgrade crashes.

    Perhaps updates should automatically disable ALL plugins, then let the user reactivate them manually. If there was a known problem about a plugin, shouldn't it be noted SOMEWHERE on a screen so it could be dealt with BEFORE upgrading?

    How and where do I get version 3.4.2 to upload it?

    Thanks

    Perhaps updates should automatically disable ALL plugins

    That would immediately cause major issues with caching plugins. Plus you're assuming that all plugins are built to WPORG standards and can be deactivated. That's not always the case, unfortunately.

    @docboulay: Do you have a pre-upgrade database backup?

    @docboulay: It's archived on the WP site. I just used that version.

    Ichadwick, were you able to reinstall 4.3.2 through the dashboard or did you have to do a manual install? If able to reinstall through the dashboard, please advise how. Thank you.

    @rmacosky: It is impolite to interrupt another poster's ongoing thread with a question of your own and it causes significant problems for the forum's volunteers. Please post your own topic.

    Sorry, I did not know. I now know the proper etiquette.
