One of the suggestions for improving the longevity of solid-state drives is
to mount them using the noatime flag which reduces the number of

UUID=[string] /               ext4 errors=remount-ro 0       1
It works. If I put relatime there, that works but if I use
noatime, the line is flagged as bad.

does noatime not work?
Many thanks.

Martin, please show us the failing line. noatime works fine for me in fstab:

/dev/mapper/vg-root / ext4 noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1

mount confirms that it is being honoured:

/dev/mapper/vg-root on / type ext4 (rw,noatime,errors=remount-ro,data=ordered)
