Blank screen after login following fedora 26 update

I have just upgraded my desktop from fedora 25 to the recently released fedora 26. However following login which appears successful there is just a blank screen with a cursor in the middle that does not respond to the mouse.

I can boot with runlevel 3 into the terminal and my files are there. But I cannot boot normally into the Gnome desktop. Can anyone help with this? What information can I provide which might help to solve the problem?

Blank screen after login following fedora 26 update

I have just upgraded my desktop from fedora 25 to the recently released fedora 26. However following login which appears successful there is just a blank screen with a cursor in the middle that does not respond to the mouse.

I can boot with runlevel 3 into the terminal and my files are there. But I cannot boot normally into the Gnome desktop. Can anyone help with this? What information can I provide which might help to solve the problem?
