       -f     Force  the  tune2fs  operation  to  complete even in the face of
              errors.  This option is useful  when  removing  the  has_journal
              filesystem feature from a filesystem which has an external jour-
              nal (or is corrupted such that it appears to  have  an  external
              journal), but that external journal is not available.
Does this help you to get further?
