Hello guys,
I'm quite devastaed since I have no back up and suddenly, after a rebbot I can't boot my laptop.
I have some family photos there and bookmarks with some passwords which I really need!
Silly me, I know I should have make a backup :(
Would somebody be able to help me, if there is any help?

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.

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
