It seems that this error is related to your partition.
Boot the aptosid cd and execute the following command as root:
      Code:
 fsck -f -c -p [your partition]

Maybe fsck is able to fix this problem.
If not, you probably have a bigger problem, because some very important files are affected by this Input/Output Error (means that you can't read nor write/delete this file).

In case of critical I/O Errors I migrate my data (/home) to another partition and reinstall the system.
But I don't know how the experts in this forum would react.

EDIT: This threat should be moved to "Installation"


I'm running fsck -f -c -p /dev/sda5 now, seems to be taking a very long time, > 30 minutes so far. 50GB partition.


fsck ran successfully, rebooted and system is up. Any further info on what the problem is, where to check, what not to update?

Thanks sx9 for the help!

up to now it looks like, when asked if to accept the maintainers new version, its best to hit enter (i.e. keep the old one)
strange enough i didnt see that question either and all is fine on 3 boxes (32/64)

Which version of grub does ask for it if it does at all?

grub 1.99-2 did install here without any problems (32bit) and without a question. If 1.99-3 might be critical I would wait with an upgrade until things become clearer.

On a second machine (32bit) I did an upgrade to 1.99 that replaced the release candidate versions, too, but I am not sure if it was -1 or -2. But there also no problems and no question.

And I see that grub-common, grub-pc, grub-pc-bin, and grub2-common are again available for upgrading. Uh, let me know how that one turns out... I'll wait a few on that after today Wink
