On my machine running Ubuntu 14.04, I recently ran sudo apt-get update, and sudo apt-get upgrade. After running the upgrades, I was instructed to complete a restart. Everything seemed normal, until the system restarted with an error.
Error: Failure reading sector 0x52cc4 from 'hd0.' Press any key to continue.
After pressing a key, the screen proceeded to flash a few times, before a page of text appeared (attachment)
I ran Boot repair, from an Ubuntu Live USB. While using Boot Repair, I selected the recommended repair option. After Boot repair finished, a message appeared stating that the Boot was successfully repaired, and that I could now reboot the system. After rebooting, I was automatically brought to Grub. However, If I select the Ubuntu option in Grub, I immediately see the page of text, that I originally saw (attachment). Before running Boot repair, I was unable to access the Grub menu. Could someone please offer some suggestions on why this happened, or how I could possibly fix it? Thank you, very much, for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.
Edit: I am unable to attach the photos that were taken of the screen. I am not sure how important the page is. Below, I have attempted to type out, some of the lines of text, with hopes of providing an example. Thank you, again.
