Today I tried to boot my Fedora 27, and instead of booting it gives me a message:

You are in emergency mode.
After logging in, type "journalctl -xb" to view system logs, "system reboot" to reboot, "systemctl default" or ^D to boot into default mode.

and immediately after that, it says:

Cannot open access to console, the root account is locked.
See sulogin(8) man page for more details.

Press Enter to continue.

What is the recommended way to solve this?

I connected the disk to another computer and run fsck (no errors) but nothing changes. I still cannot boot the laptop.

What is the F symbol? Is this an answer to my question or a new problem/question related to it?
