I have only swap and root partitions. Now I have reinstalled the system and all is working fine. Thanks for the help! Now I know that I must first unmount a partition before checking it with fsck.

And perhaps that will teach you to use a sensible partitioning scheme of not
just having a single / and swap partition, but separate partitions for at least /,
/usr, /usr/local, /var, and /home, so that if anything goes wrong with one of the file systems, you at least do not lose everything.

May you further usage of Debian give you much more satisfaction!
