Ubunutu latest updates break my installation

I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my Vista machine with a dual boot.
My Ubuntu installation resides in the second drive to which I gave its entire space to this new OS.

It worked fine until I decided to install all latest updates, assuming it would work like Windows or OSX. The updater reported all updates were successful. But when I rebooted the machine, Ubuntu could not start up, failing to find hard drives.

Since this was a new install without any user data, I reinstalled the software from a live CD. And it is working again.

I will not be doing update anytime soon.
