The fsck binary is trying to read from your home filesystem, but is
getting IO errors back.

This could be due to a number of things.  The disk might be going bad,
for example.  Try "dmesg" to look at the kernel logs ("dmesg|less" is
easier to parse), to see if there are errors indicating what sort of
IO failure is going on.

This does look more like an underlying storage problem than a
filesystem problem.

Cheers,
 Stephen
