Yes, I agree it is somewhat like trying to get blood out of a stone.

My intention is not to give you constant unpaid consulting service and
tell you which buttons to push next forever, I would like to help you get
into the mindset to help yourself. I asked leading questions, hoping that
they would steer you to the concepts that you needed and that you would
carry on from there. Hoping you would learn along the way something about
how to troubleshoot for yourself and what kind of information/data is
important to post when asking for help. Most helpful posters want to help
people help themselves, not do it for them.

sudo mkdir /debian_home /data   #will create the directories (folders) in
your filesystem, this is required for mounting, the mount points have to
be there.

sudo mount -a   #will then mount all the mount points in your fstab that
are correctly configured and that do not have the noauto option. You will
have the permissions you specify.
