Why did I get after boot-up "bad_pool-caller" ?!

bad_pool_caller    How strange !  I booted up this morning, and that is what faced me.  It called for a click to take care of an error. I did so. I saw an empty bar get a green, filling in, left to right, progress bar.  If i had it to do over again, I would have first checked on the web with a different computer if this is a legitimate process  !  But I didn't think I could go forward. It filled the screen.

I have a Lenovo laptop that was new and sat for two years before using, and has been my main computer daily for 5 years. It has been good.  I have been the only user. 

Immediately afterward, I spent only a few minutes looking at an initial web search result: there was a lot of replies there which only confused me more.  One of those initial replies to my inquiry gave a long column of things I can do to analyze and repair but with no guidance. Another search result stated there may be a needed series of fixes.  But as I stated, I already got after I had clicked on for repair what appeared to be repaired, as per the "progress bar."   It did not take more than 5 to 7 seconds.  I don't recall any affirmation that the repair is complete. This made me more suspicious.

Even if legitimate, what an unusual presentation and" fast fix !"  DID I LET A PIRATE IN  ?
