Need help with an error message for Ubuntu 13.10


Greetings All,

I'm NEW to Linux 13.10. I'm getting a error message on start up.
In the past, I would just press S to skip mounting. That is NOT
working any more.

Error Message : An error occurred while mounting/mnt/3F3C-1AF6.
Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery

Is there a command, that I can use to continue to boot or at
least find out what is wrong with my Ubuntu 13.10?
When I press S or M .... nothing happens.

Thanks in advance!

PEACE to ALL .... MJ

What is the partition? Is it a FAT32 flash drive or partition? Do you have an entry for it in the /etc/fstab directory? Try commenting it out by putting a hash mark (#) at the beginning of the line.

Ubuntu 13.10 is not supported and longer, you might think about upgrading to 14.04 while it is still possible.

You might consider booting into safe mode and following the advice of yancek to comment out that line in /etc/fstab. If that does not work, you should Google for instructions of how to boot into single user mode. That should not mount any filesystems besides the root filesystem.

Also, as was suggested, you need to upgrade to a supported version of Ubuntu, either 14.04 or 14.10.
