updates fail due to read only file system

Post by james2b » Sun Jul 14, 2019 5:35 am

With Mint 19.1 64 bit the updates fail due to read only file system which occurred after I did a check and repair of the file system with the fsck command. So now how do I boot it as read write to allow the updater to actually work?

Did you reboot the machine after the fsck check?
If not do so see if it was remounted RW.
