What problem?  There's no sign of a problem in the above --- fsck
found the fs clean and exited.  That's not a problem.  If you want to
force a full fsck regardless of whether the filesystem is clean or
not, you can always "fsck -f".

fsck is the generic program for checking any filesystem.  e2fsck is
the specific version customised for ext2 and ext3.  If you run fsck,
all it does it work out which type of filesystem is involved --- it
then calls the appropriate special-case program to check that
particular filesystem.

So, for ext2 or ext3 filesystems, it doesn't much matter whether you
call fsck or e2fsck.  If you call fsck, then fsck will invoke e2fsck
itself automatically.
