"8 indicates a corrupt filesystem was found during a check, or repairs did not succeed. That's it."

You might be able to repair the filesystem using fsck from the CLI in single-user mode.

In the past, some commercial third-party tools have had much better success than Disk Utility at fixing corrupted filesystems.  I have read that in recent versions of macOS, many of these tools now have their own GUIs – but call a common macOS API to do the repair work, possibly erasing some of their former advantages.
