Ubuntu: After upgrading to 16.04.2 to 16.04.3 the file system would only load read-only


After upgrade Ubuntu would only boot readonly.

1.  First check to see the uuid entered in /etc/fstab:
cat /etc/fstab revealed that the original uuid was different then the current uuid

2. Check to see what the current UUID is showing up as:
blkid

3. If the UUID does not match, remount the filesystem to the new UUID and change fstab:

mount -rw -o remount UUID=6ccc9680-2706-41e1-896a-b347cab0ba7e /

vi /etc/fstab to replace the  UUID

4. Reboot
