ext4 filesystem "needs journal recovery"
I have errors from
error: sparse file not allowed. error: no such device: 21b294f1-25bd-4265-9c4e-d6e4aeb57e97. error: can't find command `linux'. error: can't find command `initrd'.
If I run
file -s /dev/sda, I see:
/dev/sda: Linux rev 1.0 ext4 filesystem data, UUID=6e1fd477-4aec-4323-83b8-55c419ce471f (needs journal recovery) (extents) (64bit) (large files) (huge files)
This is very worrying because I can’t reboot the machine, what can I do?
