When you are booted in Linux Mint Live, can you open a terminal and share the output of the following.
Code:
lsblk

Well, it appears your hardrive has failed, and crucial config files are not readable.

In your live environment you open a terminal and run the following.
Code:
sudo apt install util-linux
lsblk

No it is not a lost cause, the files can be recovered. You need an adapter that can read the drive externally and a computer running the same operating system that you had. Recovering linux data is trickier because of the format. If you are unable to read it externally, you should try contacting a data recovery specialist.

I'd open "Disks", see if the drive is in there, and use that to check the file system. I grabbed a quick and dirty screenshot of me using the live Mint in a virtual machine.

Strange that it can't find lsblk on your system, can you share the output of the following from the Linux Mint live environtment.
Code:
dmesg | grep sda

Can you try the following and share the output, instead of sharing a screenshot could you share the output in text?
Code:
sudo fsck.ext4 /dev/sda1
