Ubuntu 18.04.03 /dev/nvme0n1p2: clean

Asked by Rahim Hashim on 2020-02-11

Upon booting Ubuntu 18.04.03, I hit a screen saying “/dev/nvme0n1p2: clean, xxx/xxx files, xxx/xxx blocks” at which no keyboard commands changes the screen or the cursor. The only way to get off the screen is to turn off the computer and turn it back on, which leads to the same screen.

As mentioned, I’m not able to access terminal/command line - this is the only screen that comes up, without any way to get out of it.

For additional information:
- Downloaded Linux Version: Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS on Western Digital Black NVMe 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
- MSI MPG 2390 Gaming Edge AC
- Intel Core i7-8700K 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor

If you boot to root recovery mode can you run things there. Is the root file system full is what I'm afer

A line like this is shown on all Ubuntu systems when they boot. So there is nothing wrong with this line.
But this line should disappear after a couple of seconds. Did you wait long enough that you can be sure that this does not change any more? Do you hear disk activity or see network activity in this mode?

You should try to force the grub menu showing (by hitting the shift key early during booting) and select recovery mode.

I’ve waited over 2 hours for it, and it has not changed.

The grub menu wasn’t coming up via shift. I rebooted the system from a USB and reinstalled Ubuntu to the computer.

Thanks for your help.
