Appears to be some of the 5X, 10X deck coatings that get a lot of attention due to failure.

I think deck restore is one of the brand names. They make an old deck look good initially but once moisture gets under the coating it will start to peel. I'm not sure what the best fix is for it. All the loose needs to be removed but there will be areas that it stays stuck so if you recoat with a solid deck stain you'll have smooth and textured areas. If you recoat with the same type of coating there will be differences in texture between the peeled and sound areas.

The coatings are intended to provide a few more additional years of life in an old and decaying life. Not really repairable, next step is rebuild/replace!

As Marq said, that's a product normally meant for decks near the end of their life. From what I can see of the wood in yours, it probably is. If you can't afford it now, it's at least time to start saving for a new deck rather than putting any effort into this one.

I slightly disagree. The deck will need to be replaced at some point but often if money is in short supply that time might be put off longer than it should. Scraping, cleaning and apply a coat of something [I'd use a solid deck stain] will protect the deck some and hopefully make it useful until the money is available for a new deck. Doing nothing means the deck might fail before you are ready to replace it.
