Spotlight indexing broken

I rebooted my Mac a couple days ago and now it won't index anything. I just get the message shown in the screenshot attached (I erased my name from the screenshot).

I have tried:

1. Rebooted.
2. Cleaned font cache with MainMenu.
3. Ran sudo mdutil -E /
4. Ran sudo rm -rf /.Spotlight*
5. Repaired disk permissions.
6. Installed latest updates
7. Rebooted again.

Still no luck. What else can I do?

Do a Safe boot, holding down the shift key on restart.

If that doesn't do it, Run Disk Warrior. DW will solve problems that you didn't even know that you had.

Safe boot didn't work, but Disk Warrior file check & repair solved the issue! Spotlight re-indexed and now it is working. Thanks!
