What cleaner did you use? The pic with the light switch looks like it went down multiple layers and may be an unrelated failure.

Looks like what can happen with latex over oil. Maybe there was an old oil enamel on the walls, that even with sanding, the new latex didn't bond to. Some places(the different wall) could have already been painted once with latex, your latex would have bonded to it, but it wasn't bonded to the original either.
Cleaner residue could potentially do that, but wouldn't explain why some pulled off the layer beneath it.
You'll have to remove the loose stuff and start over if you want a good bond. After removing the paint, clean/sand it again with a cleaner that won't leave a residue. Alcohol maybe. Then prone it with a bonding primer designed to make the transition from oil to latex.

Next time use PRIMER. Real primer. Not to be a smart @## but take your pics back to the HD and ask what they can do to help with the problem, then come back and post the reply. This is just to reenforce why we preach go to a real paint store. I'm sorry you had problems but the only thing I can see is sanding and starting all over.
