I have had the same problem when upgrading from 12.04 to a higher version. As it turns out, Ubuntu has an error reporting system called "apport", which was deactivated in stabled releases of Ubuntu until 12.04 and is reactivated now. Manuel Jose has made an excellent quick-guide how to turn off the error reporting in apport
Open your terminal and type: gksudo gedit /etc/default/apport And hit Enter. Change enabled=1 to enabled=0, then save and exit. To solve this problem, you can watch this YouTube video. See also: How do I enable or disable Apport?

Your filesystem is corrupted; backup your data immediately. When your system becomes like the one in the first screenshot; press F to fix the partition. But I'd backup my data first before doing that. If it persists, you can start Ubuntu from a Live CD/USB and open a partition manager and right-click your installed Ubuntu partition and select the check ...
I had this problem with skype since 12.10 and I don't know why they haven't fixed this yet. The problem is with a dependency library which contains plugins for distributing audio through the system.
