umount: /media: mountpoint not found

I have this strange error when I try to umount my usb drive :

$ umount /media
umount: /media: mountpoint not found

fstab :

$ cat /etc/fstab
...
/dev/sdb1              /media      vfat       user,noauto,noatime,flush,fmask=133,dmask=022       0       0

Trying to mount again while it is already mounted :

$ mount /media
mount: /dev/sdb1 is already mounted or /media busy
       /dev/sdb1 is already mounted on /media

It is strange because it has always worked before.

Re: umount: /media: mountpoint not found

Do you actually have a /media dir? If you don't have udisks installed, you may not since that package is what provides that dir for Arch.

If so, what is the output of "mount"?

Re: umount: /media: mountpoint not found

Yes I have a /media folder and I can mount my files normally. I get the error message when I try to umount as a normal user. Umounting with sudo works.

mount command :

$ mount
/dev/sdb1 on /media type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,noatime,uid=1000,gid=100,fmask=0133,dmask=0022,codepage=437,iocharset=iso8859-1,shortname=mixed,flush,errors=remount-ro,user=<user>)

I have the same problem.

In case you really need it, you can umount the FS as root…
Annoying, but it allows to clean things…

Re: umount: /media: mountpoint not found

I noticed the same issue with CDs. My fstab file contains the line

/dev/sr0    iso9660    /cdrom    defaults,ro,user,noauto    0 0

As a normal user, I can mount the CD as usual, but when I enter

umount /cdrom

I get the message

umount: /cdrom: mountpoint not found

That isn't how things get fixed.

No, it isn't. This is Arch (and volunteering/OSS in general). Things get done because people put in the effort to actually debug and fix things, not click vote buttons.
