First, thank you for the suggestions and attention to this issue.

I may have gotten caught up in the details, so here's the crux of the 

In the past I ran 'fsck,' 'dpkg,' and 'clean' (in that order) in 
'recovery mode.' (From the menu I mention below.)

I had to run 'fsck' first because 'dpkg,' and 'clean' both mounted the 
root partition. (So I concluded that the root partition is NOT mounted 
when the system is booted into 'recovery mode.')

Now, suddenly, I can no longer run 'fsck' from 'recovery mode.'

Have things changed such that this no longer works?
