Bingo! Same thing here
I did a normal shutdown in my office ... and now when I wanted to boot my laptop again it gives me error after error.
To shorten the story: I booted with a live CD, checked all filesystems, and what I found out is that the /usr
partition is now empty ... !!!
Oh well ... looks like re-install time ...
But thanks to the UNIX partitioning scheme I always use I can now backup /etc
first (because it's on the /
partition) thus preserve my working system configuration, and I don't need to touch /home
at all ...
It just sucks that something like this could even happen ...
