I have a Xubuntu 15.10 dual boot with Windows. This started yesterday, I was trying to create a Xubuntu 15.10 USB live disk so I could help a friend. I had errors with it but now my system will dismount, then mount read-only. I had to fix it TWICE with fsck in the initramfs shell. It did it again. here is the latest log on the error:

[  337.064235] EXT4-fs error (device sda7): ext4_ext_check_inode:496: inode #24798: comm duplicity: pblk 0 bad header/extent: invalid magic - magic 0, entries 0, max 0(0), depth 0(0)

I really don't want to have to redo this dual boot. Could anyone help please?

I have tried fsck.ext4 -f /dev/sda7.

  • You might want to run the memtest option at the boot menu to see if you have bad ram. Otherwise it looks like the disk is silently corrupting data. – psusi Dec 10 '15 at 22:39
  • Maybe, it is because duplicity is an interference. – juniorRubyist Dec 11 '15 at 18:36

Duplicity was interfering with my data. I removed Deja-Dup and duplicity from my system.
