    It should give you a chance to get an interactive prompt, usually by hitting ctrl-d, and once you're at that prompt, you can type:

    fsck /dev/sda1

    It will probably give you a series-- possibly hundreds --of y/n prompts to fix something. Just hit y on them, and unless your hard drive is completely ruined, you should come out fine.

    Your hdd or USB is corrupted. Fix it with fsck

    If it's a VM delete the virtual hard disk and make another one

    How about you READ the fucking error message and just do what it says?

    The "RUN fsck MANUALLY" part is probably what threw you off...

    Dude, it's linux. It usually does its best to tell/explain you what got fucked up and how to fix it.

    Either hit ctrl+d and follow instructions to get root shell, or reboot into live environment [from usb] and fsck [FileSystemChecK] your /dev/sd* devices as root [´fsck /dev/sd*´]

    Also, clean your cooling fans and make sure the vents are clear. Heat kills electronics; it will melt the solder from the components.

    Why did that happen tho?

    Some... less capable filesystems are more prone to issues like this, and require primitive measures like this to be recovered. It boggles my mind that ext4 is still the default FS on most major distros. It's super shitty.

    @bahua what's your favorite fs then?

    @erandria

    I recommend xfs for simplicity, stability, performance, and not having to have any knowledge to benefit from it.

    I recommend btrfs to people who want to tinker.
