    Boot Failure

    Dear Friends,
    My main computer failed to reboot after it displayed some weirdness opening Libre Office, and has continues to fail. Here is the error message:

    /dev/sda2 contains a file system with errors, check forced.

    /dev/sda2: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY: run fsck manually.
    (i.e without -a or -p options)
    fsck exited with status code 4
    The foot filesystem on /dev/sda2 requires a manual fsck

    BusyBox v1.30.1 (Ubuntu 1:1.30.1-4ubuntu6.3) built in shell (ash)
    Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

    (initremfs)

    This is above my pay grade. Any help or advice welcome. Please be careful and explicit with you replies. I am not very skilled with the terminal and need details that me be obvious to most of you.
    Yours hopefully,
    Joe

    What happened when you ran fsck manually as recommended? Many sites online explaining how to do that.

    Simply boot to a live Ubuntu system; it doesn't matter which DE version, Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu etc etc, and from that run terminal command
    Code:
    sudo e2fsck /dev/sda2
    and see what it reports back.
