My HP laptop fails to load the login screen after saying

[FAILED] Failed to start Accounts Service

There's an error concerning the partition of a disk that keeps showing up.

BTRFS critical (device sda3): corrupt node: root=5 .........

When I launch the terminal on non graphical mode and try to type apt-get update for instance, it does not recognize the command and also keeps display

BTRFS critical (device sda3): corrupt node: root=5 .........

Running systemctl status accounts-daemon.service

Active: failed

Anyone knows how to fix this and whether there's a workaround this?

  • What is the complete BTRFS error message? – Emmanuel Rosa Jun 2 at 9:37
