Now you've got corrupted system indexes (IIRC this is a symptom of
problems in one of the indexes for pg_attribute).

You might be able to recover from this using a REINDEX DATABASE
operation (read the man page carefully, it's a bit tricky), but
I am convinced that you've got hardware problems.  I would suggest
that you first shut down the database and then find and fix your
hardware problem --- otherwise, things will just get worse and worse.
After you have a stable platform again, you can try to restore
consistency to the database.
