Electrical power out - Nightmares!

I was installing VirtualVox via synaptic and the electrical power of the entire neighborhood got out since a drunk guy hit an electrical pole.

When I reboot I type the password for my "/" and /swap partitions and then when it was supposed to ask me for the /home password I get lots of red texts saying I need to do fsck. I do it and then it says I have a corrupt filesystem or that partition does not exist.

Any help?

Debian Jessie 64bit, up to date.

AMD Athlon II X2 250 @3.6Ghz
4GB DDR3 1600 Corsair Vengeance

EDIT: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, somehow it booted even after saying that I had a corrupt filesystem. I now am trying to remove VirtualBox but it gives me

error: syntax error in triggers deferred file `/var/lib/dpkg/triggers/Unincorp' at character
EDIT 2: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Deleting "/var/lib/dpkg/triggers/Unincorp" and "/var/lib/dpkg/triggers/Unincorp.old" solved the problem. Now all the websites I visit are "unsecure" as Chromium says.

EDIT 3: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Editing my time settings solved the problem. Uh! I thought my computer was dying :P
