Since upgrading to Kubuntu 21.04 I am having ongoing issues mounting USB sticks (exfat).
I keep getting this message:
An error occurred while accessing ‘cylon’, the system responded: The requested operation has failed: Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sda1: unknown filesystem type ‘swap’
nb. My upgrades and addition of backports lately have been messsy! Files have been left out. I am sure something is missing!
At one point I noticed exfat-utils and exfat-fuse were missing. After re-installing them, re-formatting the USB stick in KDEpartition Manager I was able to mount the USB file sytem and transfer data.
However, the problem still keeps recurring! Argh! This happens across a number of different USB sticks.
How can I get USB sticks to automount consistently?
I have automount enable in settings. You can see the USB stick ‘Cylon’ is identified in Attached Devices but is greyed out.
