do-release-upgrade from terminal, terminal exited by mistake

I am upgrading to Ubuntu 19.04 using sudo do-release-upgrade. When the command offered me to edit a configuration file or to replace it with a new one. I tried to edit it. For this bash creates a shell which needs to be exited after making changes to the configuration file. By mistake I exited twice, causing the terminal in which I was doing do-release-upgrade got exited before completion.

Now I am able to boot into 19.04, but certain things have gone wrong, such as the all icons have gone missing! Desktop is blank.

How can I fix this? How could I resume from where the process had stopped before?

If I do (see below), nothing happens and the problems are persisting!

sudo do-release-upgrade
Checking for a new Ubuntu release
No new release found.

How can I resolve this? I have not taken backup of root partition, I do have 19.04 in a bootable drive. But I guess this won't help as I am able to boot successfully.
