USB external drive fails to mount after upgrade


I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04 after which my external USB drive will not mount. I'm new to this and am in fear of losing the data.This is the error msg.
Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sdd1: Command-line `mount "/mnt/wwn-0x5000039ff4d96d08-part1"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: /dev/sdd1 is write-protected, mounting read-only

How did you do the upgrade ?. Did you happen to download an iso and write it to a USB ?. Looks like it ...

Also, it kind of looks like you may have an install iso over the hard drive.

I think Cardinal548 may be seeing the same thing:

to see the file open up terminal and use the following. It will work as long as nano is installed:

Code:
nano /etc/fstab
You may need to use sudo, but it's best you don't so you don't change values by accident.

This basically shows you how your drives are mounted at boot.

There is no need to open fstab with an editor, you can print it to the screen with cat command or use a pager like less to view it. Anyhow, it sure looks like there is an ISO written to the sdd1. Time to restore your sdd from backup.
