I have just managed to install ubuntu and then sage a few days ago. Therefore I am an absolute beginner.

When I was using sage, due to external power issues, the computer suddenly switched off and after that, I am unable to open sage notebook. Its showing an error.

Try deleting the file /home/bhavanishankar/.sage/sage_notebook.sagenb/ I am not sure what is going on but it seems that sage thinks another notebook is running.

Did you try notebook(reset=True)

I have tried notebook(reset=True). It asked me to set a password and after that it showed the same error.
