Your system isn't crippled, Tim. In /var/tmp, you have a file named
gnome_upgrade_lst.XXXXX (the X's are random chars). All you have to do
is fix the openoffice build problem -- or remove the openoffice line
from that file, and do:
gnome_upgrade.sh -restart /var/tmp/gnome_upgrade_lst.XXXXX
and it will pick up where it left off.
