Thank you for the assistance. I just ran that command and there was no output.

If it is a SD card issue do you think I would be able to use a tool like Clonezilla to just copy everything over to a new SD card? If not that, I am open to other recommendations.
It looks like I purchased the current SD card on Apr 18, 2020. A while ago I offloaded a lot of the data from the SD card to a USB 3.0 drive as the RW speed was a bit slow on the SD card. 3 years of constant use is pretty good.

Thanks again for the help. I am a System Admin and former Telecom Admin. I know my way around a lot of systems however I am very green with Linux stuff. Best part about IT stuff is you will never know everything and there is always another rock to turn over :slight_smile:

I have attached the output of dmesg. I am not sure if that will help or not.

found following in your log

[    2.588715] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Attached SCSI removable disk
[    2.849256] F2FS-fs (sda1): recover fsync data on readonly fs

[    2.849753] VFS: Mounted root (f2fs filesystem) readonly on device 8:1.

Do you have an external disk attached? It looks like this disk is holding your RootFS and has been mounted R/O ??
