Public bug reported: My system is a toshiba satellite that was originally windows and i converted to ubuntu after several errors led to me erasing my harddrive and installing ubuntu. I frequently need to manually fsck /dev/sda2. I have also found that it is difficult to install updates on this system. I typically need to reboot and manually fsck then attempt reinstall. I believe that I am running ubuntu 16.43.
