Ubuntu does not have /temp. So unless you've previously created such a
folder or mounted another filesystem to /temp it's quite possible that
you're talking about the /tmp folder.
Also, it's worth noting that after update manager last run on my netbook
I received a warning about low disk space. Clearing /tmp sorted this for
me. Running out of space could be the cause of your problem.

If you can't bypass the disk check I suggest you use the Ubuntu CD (if
you have a CD drive for your netbook) or a flash drive. From the
terminal type the following and review the output:
sudo fdisk -1
sudo df -h
If it's not evident that space is the problem post the output. If you're
out of space you can safely delete the contents of /tmp and reboot.
