Someone else had the same issue with too much white space. I think he never really resolved it but later it worked. Must be some difference in versions?
just run this but it is harder to read. But if you have not labeled anything then it really does not matter. I was just trying to show labels.
Oldfred on vacation with no real computer access. (when you are retired is it still a vacation?)
May 23 thru June 5. For info on UEFI boot install & repair:
The 2 partitions are on the device sdf. There is also a swap partition on that device too. The 2 partitions we are talking about areThe mount points are blue and the UUID is red.Code:sdf2 ext4 /media/6e9ac323-45f6-4cb0-acca-8277530a3584_ 6e9ac323-45f6-4cb0-acca-8277530a3584 sdf5 ntfs HP Pocket Media Drive /media/HP Pocket Media Drive_ 08EC8654EC863BC6
If these are not mounted in fstab then you can unmount the devices and delete the mount points and new ones will be created. I agree with @ oldfred that the label for the HP Pocket Media drive should be shorter and with no spaces. Maybe: hp__usb_drive.
We should check first to make sure these are not mounted via the fstab file. You can provide the output like thisPast that output here.Code:cat /etc/fstab > fstab.txt

...or you reboot the OS.Code:mount -a
I see there is a 2nd swap partition on this removable disk. Did you do this on purpose? I have highlighted it in red above.
By the way, what doesin reference to the root partition of the main hard drive mean? Thanks for your input today.Code:errors=remount-ro 0 1
