ok I checked I know there should be a file /var/log/messages but this
file does not exist on my
system  don't know what might be broken any hint here will be helpful....

while I wanted to pastebin the file /var/log/syslog I got a message
permission denied
cat syslog > pastebinit
bash: pastebinit: Permission denied

any how pastebinit -f syslog worked and here is the output of syslog
and dmesg is here
I am not sure as to what might be wrong in above two logs
