"Saving files" happens BEFORE you undertake a major change. Hardware or software. Sometimes things go wrong.
How did this upgrade get interrupted?
You were updating from what to what, exactly?

After this error, saving files would almost certainly involve removing the drive, connecting it to some other system as a secondary, and seeing what may still be in there.
