That is a common problem. Looks like the restore point is corrupted. Try another restore point.

In the future make images. Those you control yourself. Imaging with free Macrium

See whether you can open any of the restore points with this program. ShadowExplorer.com - About

I am at the end of my wits. There is obviously corruption in your system. If startup/repair cannot fix it, that's the end of the line for this installation.

Before venturing into a reinstall, I do recommend you let this thread age a bit. Maybe somebody else has a better idea.
