Bad News.

You have a

Sep 9 08:32:18 ubuntu kernel: [ 591.008047] ata1.00: exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0xffffe07 SErr 0x0 action 0x6 frozen

in your logs(UbiquitySyslog.txt if you want to look) followed by many many read/write errors.

This indicates a harddrive connection damage(the wire). So there is not much to do from software side.

I have seen that you have written similiar in the summary of the report.

Mostly a new SATA wire helps(the plugs may be deformed, because of thermal heating in the PC, which causes disconnections).
