I'm in desperation mode. I upgraded to 15.10 last night, via
sudo do-release-upgrade. I did nothing else at the time. It passed without incident.
Then it asked to restart. I pressed Enter. It rebooted, went to the Ubuntu load screen, and hangs.
I pressed Ctrl+Meta+F2 to view the command line. It says…
fsck from util-linux 2.26.2 /dev/sda1: recovering journal /dev/sda1: clean, 995697/3871592 files, 52624527/154846720 blocks
…and stays there forever. I can get to recovery mode, but none of the options help (I ran them all). I can get to root terminal, but I don't know what to do from there.
I have backups, but I also don't want to spend a week setting up my system all over again.
How do I fix this?
