I would try this using folders that exist. Create a folder like
/mnt/jupiter and try replacing "/media/jupiter" with "/mnt/jupiter".
The reason I say this is that /media is a special folder intended for
hot-plug devices (devices where the folder doesn't exist beforehand and
Ubuntu creates it when you plug in the device). So folders in /media are
fair game to be deleted at any time. And /etc/fstab should expect the mount
point to exist always.
I expect this will increase reliability, too.
