Note that second field is a mountpoint in fstab(5), as one of the stock

Yours have a block device name instead of mountpoint:

UUID=900b5f0b-4f3d-4a64-8c91-29aee4c6fd07 /dev/sdb1 ext4 errors=remount-ro 0
UUID=d65867da-c658-4e35-928c-9dd2d6dd5742 /dev/sdc1 ext4 errors=remount-ro 0
UUID=007c1f16-34a4-438c-9d15-e3df601649ba /dev/sdc2 ext4 errors=remount-ro 0
So even a stock mount(1) should refuse to mount these.

When I rebooted the computer the OS didn't like the new fstab and gave me a
number of, at least to me, obscure messages.
systemd-mount can be cryptic, I agree.

Obviously, I missed something important.  My question is what?
It's a kind of dumb question, but where do you need your sdb1, sdc1 and
sdc2 mounted? Your fstab(5) does not mention that.


Well, that's another red faced forehead slapper!

It merely reinforces that I don't know what I'm doing as far as hardware is concerned.

It's a good thing that I'm an Organic Chemist and not an IT person.

Many, many thanks.
