Does anything else works on the panel? If not your .gconf file may have been reconfigured during the update. You can try
rm -dr panel
Don't forget to do a backup of your panel directory before to do it,
I had a similar post a few weeks ago for different reason, I join the answer that solved my problem, I left the signature, I hope that OK with the person who helped me
Answer to my post "mouse doesn't open anything in the toolbar anymore" ( I meant the panel, didn't know the name)
On rare occasions, Gnome will sometimes crash making things unclickable.
* *Fortunatly, this rarely ever brings the computer to a halt even if
it appears so. *Hitting the key combination Ctrl+Alt+Backspace (not
delete) will restart GDM, and drop you back to the login screen. *This
sometimes happens to me if I am trying a buggy new program. *A Hard
power off is almost always unnecessary, and can possibly currupt the
file system in instances. *Since Gnome stores it's tool bar information
in xml files ( I think anyway) chances are one of the files wasn't
written to correctly at the time of the crash and in turn sort of
corrupting that file. *To fix your problem you could go to Nautilus, and
select the "show hidden files" box under the view menu then erasing the
"panel" folder. Go to ".gconf">"apps" and erase the folder called
"panel", which will flush all the settings for applet placement and
customization. *After this log off, and log back in. *The folder should
have recreated itself, and your *settings should be restored to default
along with your ability to use the toolbar. *Hope this works
something more was messed up, you could erase the "nautilus" folder in
.gconf too, hopefully that will fix you up.
Let me know how this worked!

Did you try to reinstall the gnome panel and see if it comes back. Just an idea, you can open your terminal in GUI by clicking the right side of the mouse and create a launcher if you want to stay on GUI, but I don't know the command to open the synaptic package manager. Just beginning, sorry
Hope that will help
