The file system was shut down during a Debian package upgrade while trying to
access apt-related files. I booted into an old 2.4 kernel on a separate

Xfs_repair terminated abnormally (see the end of the output).
The original reason for the shutdown would probably be interesting here, that's
missing information about the first problem you encountered.
But, from the repair output, it looks like corrupted directory data on disk,
hard to say when/why it occurred. Newer repair is always a good idea, but if
the directory is badly corrupted then there's not a lot of magic to be done.
