fsck -y

For step #2, you REALLY should run that command, fsck -y , repeatedly until it stops reporting that the filesystem was modified. Whenever I have to reset my machine (rare, thankfully), I ALWAYS end up with fixes on subsequent passes. Sometimes three or more passes are needed.

I usually type multiple commands (3, generally) into the terminal at once followed by returns. That queues them up for execution so it's not waiting for me to type the next command.
