no network after updates

I just done updates via terminal sudo apt update and sudo apt upgrade and sudo apt dist-upgrade then the clean up sudo apt autoclean then sudo apt autoremove. It gave me an error saying wcid had stopped, I can’t find it! Tried restarting the system no luck. Can’t even USB tether! How can I get back online? Is there commands I can run in a live session or will I need to get to a router and use an Ethernet cable? Using my phone to post this. Please help! No negativity or down votes please! I need to get ahead so I can have more respect here! I’m currently reading the Linux bible
