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: -restart /var/tmp/gnome_upgrade_lst.XXXXX

and it will pick up where it left off.
