I was running grizzly on Ubuntu 13.04 and had Cloudfoundry installed on top of it. I needed support for L2TPv3 which unfortunately is only in Ubuntu 13.10, so I decided to upgrade the kernel. When prompted whether I wanted t upgrade the openstack related files (keystone, glance etc), I declined. Lo and behold my upgrade failed (keystone crashed) and now it is a huge mess. I really do not want to go back and do the whole install again (Ubuntu 13.04, Grizzly and cloudfoundry). The question is, can i re-install Grizzly on Ubuntu 13.10 and retain my configs and data that is already provisioned?

Your configs and data would exist in the appropriate configuration places (/etc/nova/*, /etc/glance/*, etc.). Your "data" should exist in your storage backend and your database. Both of those can be preserved as well by copying the data. If the package manager overwrote any of those configs, I can't help you. Good backups are needed.

The rest of your question is really ubuntu specific which this site is not meant for, but I will try and give you some advice for it.

The reason your packages failed was for dependency reasons as I am sure you are aware. Reinstalling grizzly will probably fail for package dependency reasons. You can try apt-pinning what you need but soon youll find yourself manually managing dependencies. I would recommend going back to 13.04 and rolling your own kernel (or installing just the 13.10 kernel through normal backporting ways).
