We need more information about the problems.  You first told us of
"ext3 assertion failures" during normal running:

Assertion failures result in log messages which actually contain the
words "assertion failure" and which tell us where the problem was
discovered in the code.  When asked for more info, you gave messages
about an entirely separate oops (NOT an assertion failure) during
install.

So do you have any more info about the assertion failures, such as the
full log messages they produce?
