Hi guys
Similar issue to the problem described "by the looks of it" in this thread, but my ..i think German...isnt great ..Thread here
I cannot reboot the system normally and have to force the command, using
//systemctl --force --force reboot

If I try to do a dist update I get errors and the webGui isnt available.
After a reboot they system behaves for a period of time and then goes back into this errored state. Any help would be great. Ill post some commands below

Code:
root@vm:~# apt-get update -y

Any help would be appreciated or let me know more commands to run to help diagnose. would be great. The system is an Asus PN50 with m.2 ssd and seperate disk drive

From the read-only filesystem and input/output errors, I would guess your root filesystem is corrupted or the drive itself is corrupted. Maybe boot the system from a Linux Live CD/USB and test the drive and check the filesystem. I do hope you have backups.

Hi @Ieesteken
I do, although I have a strange feeling my backups are on that drive.
The funny thing is, that a reboot has the system working correctly now and will for a period of time, is that still symthomatic of drive or fiel system correcuption.
Is there anything I can run while its in this working state that can help me? As commands work currently.

UPDATE:
72 ERRORS, I think thats what I should be looking at and my concern would it be?

It's a QLC SSD, so I hope you are not using it with ZFS. Just the fact that there are 72 messages in the error log, does not mean they are all problematic. The drive does seem to warn about high temperatures. Maybe it only gives problems when used too much/often and it gets too hot?
 
You are going to have to help me with the ZFS question @Ieesteken.
Maybe as I moved location of the VM Host into the comms cabinet rather than the office its heated up. Ill move it back and check.
Is there a way to clear the error count and monitor?
