I just installed the latest updates today 11/25/17 and getting to "F" icon during boot and nothing happens.

Logging in "single" mode, I get these messages:

FAILED to start Journal Serice
FAILED to start Apply Kernel Variables
/usr/bin/systemd-tty-ask-password-agent: error while loading shared libraries: libsystemd-shared-234.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

and then nothing, can't execute any command - it hangs and is unresponsive.

Any ideas?

Looks like you got a version mismatch somehow. Do you by any chance have the updates-testing repository enabled? (if so, probably "don't do that" to leave things more stable) You may be able to use a Fedora live CD to perform repairs.

# boot knoppix down to single user mode:
telinit 2
# Mount main partition from my computer's hard drive
mkdir /media/mycomputer
mount -t auto -o acl /dev/disk/by-uuid/blahblah...  /media/mycomputer
# Share some things from running system, to keep various applications
# and the kernel happy.
mount --bind /dev /media/mycomputer/dev
mount --bind /tmp /media/mycomputer/tmp
mount --bind /proc /media/mycomputer/proc
mount --bind /etc/resolv.conf /media/mycomputer/etc/resolv.conf
chroot /media/mycomputer

# Now everything works:
/etc/init.d/kdm start
# (use gdm if you don't have kdm)
