Ubuntu – Booting problem after upgrade, /dev/sda2 clean


After upgrading my Ubuntu, I get this message:

/dev/sda2: clean, 908443/38690816 Files, 44176803/154733312 Blocks

and nothing happens.

Any suggestions to solve it?

I found this post related to my question, however, there is 30 sec problem there not lasting forever!
My Ubuntu is running fsck on every bootup

So, my question is not about the content of this message since it's a normal fsck output. But the question is about why the system does not boot afterwards.

I think you have no problem. It's just a normal procedure in ubuntu versions 15 and newer. I offer a link to the explanation given by its author https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/293967

Ubuntu versions 15.04 and newer perform a quick file system check on the root disk and report the result on the screen.

The message /dev/sda2: clean, 286631/6111232 files, 2586472/24413952 blocks has the following meaning:

The partition that was checked is "/dev/sda" The file system is "clean", i.e. there are no inconsistencies "286631/6111232 files": The file system has been created to allow a maximum of 6,111,232 files, and currently there are 286,631 files, "2586472/24413952 blocks": The storage capacity of the file system is 24,413,952 blocks (probably 4096 bytes each), and 2,586,472 blocks currently are in use.

This is an informational message confirming that the file system is ok. There is nothing that needs to be resolved or repaired.
