Yes, my Ubuntu server box was down most of today while I moved it all
into a new case.  And, of course, when it was all in the new case
there was a cable problem that took a couple of hours to work out - no
power to one hard drive.  I have it working temporarily on a different
power cable for now, so you can try again now.  I will have to shut it
down again some time tomorrow to fix the bad cable.
