Hi Manoj,

Thank you for your response. I have had a look at those links, and they are quite a bit "over my head", so I wonder if I should use the rescue disk to facilitate shifting my ~/working directory to my RAID disks. (Nothing else is of any consequence) and then use a Ubuntu 18.10 DVD to upgrade the distribution and hopefully create a new GRUB on (in old terms) /dev/sda3

Hi Andrew,

From the logs it looks like your sda3 partition (btrfs) is corrupt.

Perhaps you could boot from a rescue CD/flash drive and try some of the suggestions on these pages?

    Hi All,

    I have discovered a Ubuntu Boot-Repair -Disc which avoids syntax
    I was unable to come up with a satisfactory syntax for the commands

    attempts to communicate from a tablet produced a pile of crap.

    I downloaded and burned a Disk-Repair-Disk for Ubuntu

    I have run the recommended steps to repair GRUB 2.8, but nothing has
    been achieved.

    I did request the log be sent to a paste bin just in case, and as

    a few pages of text here is the link.


    The last line acknowledges the failure to achieve a result.

    This machine is critical to my work, and I had considerable
    earlier in 2019 to achieve a RAID system on this machine, for
    which I am
    truly grateful.

    I would appreciate any assistance with this problem.
