I think this error is a message from your on-disc controller that has detected an incipient failure of your disc drive. Back up your data from that drive (all partitions) asap. Since it is /dev/sda, that is your system boot drive. Make a bit-image copy to an external drive, such as a USB or eSata hard drive. Hopefully you'll get that done before the drive goes belly-up.

Sometimes real fast is almost as good as real time. Remember, Google is your friend!
