FAT32 & ExFAT are unable to be mounted. Error Message Occurs #57520
Hello,

I am attempting to attach an external SSD to the RPI4 running Stellarmate OS. I have reformatted my external drive for both FAT32 and ExFat and both refuse to be able to mount. Thsi is the exact error message I am getting:

" error mounting dev/sda2 at /media/stellarmate/samsung_T5. Unkown file system type 'exfat' "

Replace exfat for Fat32 when reformatting the SSD to Fat32. Both are not working. Should I be trying a different format?

Maybe try this?
sudo apt-get -y install  exfat-fuse exfat-utils

Then reboot and see if the EXFAT SSD works?

Hmm, thatd dint seem to do anything.

Here is what it output:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package exfat-utils is not available, but is referred to by another package
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source

E: Unable to locate package exfat-fuse
E: Package 'exfat-utils- has no installation candidate

Really unsure of what is going on. I tried to mount it manually as well.

I tried this but to no avail:

sudo mkdir /media/exfat

sudo mount -t exfat /dev/sdc1 /media/exfat


It is still giving me an unknown file system type error

I was able to get it to work.

I first ran this
Sudo apt-get update

Then I ran
Sudo apt-get install exfat-utils

Everything is working now!
