Can't reboot into Zorin 15


The below text was originally posted to the Zorin Group Forum, I had forgotten that I had posted a similar problem to this forum in Aug 2019. So I am searching for assistance once again here.
The link to the current discussion on the Zorin Group is at the bottom
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I went to reboot my notebook running Zorin 15 and all that came up is a Busybox text saying to type help and upon doing that something called Intramfs shows . I cant get the computer to boot up to anything else and after poking around a little I got some reports with he last line as below (in bold).

After reading up on this some suggested booting to grub and follow certain paths which none of them seem to get results

the root filesystem on /dev/mapper/zorin--vg-root requires a manual fsck

Please help!

Searching error notifications with a search engine (Google, whatever) will usually get you fast results. This result took about .1 seconds to find:

Luck with it.

Thanks! I followed that link and ended up wit a description that stated that the LVM was bad. I am not sure how to interpret this. I also ran a Dell diagnostic and it said the HDD had problems
Suggestion?

Show us what you did, and the error message - attach a photo in need.

Unfortunately I do not have access to the information that was displayed but I followed the information here https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...em-4175663569/ that vtel57 suggested.
I have currently been able to boot into Zorin 15 and actually was trying to run a backup but it hung up because the default save to location was Google and when I changed it to my external HDD I can't get it to run.
I am fairly certain my onboard HDD has issues and is the cause of all my problems
I am now researching what and where to buy one

If I get the back up to run I will try to recreate the page that displayed the error.

I installed a new SSD and reinstalled Zorin 15 but I am now having an issue with restoring the Backup that I made. When I select the backup file to restore it says there is nothing to restore but the folder is there full of Duplicity files. Any suggestions?

Hi, @tld6008...

Thanks for the fast reply. I'm not at all sure what method Zorin uses to make backups. Stand by to see if others above my pay-grade will pop in here to assist you.

Luck!

I am curious as to what you are curious about regarding how the backup was made.
All the files are named Duplicity-full with a serial number and a gpg extension,remind me a .rar files group.
On another forum a reply has suggested I change all the file extensions from .gpg to .gz. Of course I don't know why they would be saved with the wrong extension but there are 99 of them to rename.

You can't just change the .gpg extension. That extension is used on files that are encrypted. Changing the extension will not decrypt them.

.gpg = https://fileinfo.com/extension/gpg

Again, though... I know nothing about Zorin's backup method, so it's difficult for me to give you any advice here.

Did you use this method?

And did you password your backup?

Yes that is basically what I did and I chose not to password protect it.

Hmm... well, @tld6008, I'm just out of ideas here, my friend. I'm hoping someone a bit more experienced with Zorin will pop in and assist you.

I'm going to ask a Mod to drop this thread in the ZorinOS sub-forum. You might get more opinions there.

Luck with it! Oh, and please post on any updates you might have with the problem solving.
