I suspect that the /root filesystem has become corrupted. You need to boot from a live CD and run fsck. Example:
fsck /dev/sda1
Is Ubuntu the only OS on this computer?
Do you know which partition is /root?

You can do the same thing from a live USB distribution. See pendrivelinux.com.
I would guess it is /dev/sda1
