Thanks for your answer. Now I don't have any problems, my question was only a curiosity.

If you are able to describe, what the Windows command "sfc / scannow" does, then we might be able to name commands that do similar function on Ubuntu.

I can list some diagnostic commands already available:

sudo dpkg --audit # checks the package management system for broken dependencies
df # shows the usage for checking for (almost) full disks
ifconfig # shows (among others) the number of network transmission errors

etc. etc.
