My setup:

  • My OS is Ubuntu 18.04
  • Vagrant 2.0.0
  • VirtualBox 5.2.18 r124319
  • Ubuntu installed into vagrant/virtualbox (version uknown)

sudo vagrant up was always working, suddenly it has stopped working... it gets stuck on SSH auth method: private key until reach timeout.

So I run sudo vagrant up with GUI enabled to check for errors, and what I found:

Scanning for Btrfs filesystems 
/dev/mapper/vagrant--vg-root: contains a file system with errors, check forced. 
/dev/mapper/vagrant--vg-root: Inodes that were part of a corrupted orphan linked list found.

/dev/mapper/vagrant--vg-root: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY.  (i.e., without -a or -p options) 
fsck exited with status code 4 
The root filesystem on /dev/mapper/vagrant--vg-root requires manual fsck

How to proceed?


I've solved the issue. Here is how:

  • vagrant up with GUI enabled
  • As soon as GUI open, keep pressing Right Shift, select "Advanced Options for Ubuntu" and then select "Ubuntu in Recovery mode"
  • After "/dev/mapper/vagrant--vg-root: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY" appears, run fsck /dev/mapper/vagrant--vg-root pressing Enter everytime the proccess ask to fix an issue
  • vagrant upagain with GUI disabled, problem solved
