How To Fix “Mount Point Does Not Exist Error” In Linux

One and only solution for this error is to create a mounting point and mount the drive again.

Let’s start the solution by verifying whether the mounting point exists or not. Run the mount and grep command to filter the mounting point from the massive list:

mount | grep -w 'mounting-point-name'

For this, we will be using  a mounting point named mntd

mount | grep -w 'mntd'

Just in case you get empty output, the mounting point does not exist on your system then you need to create a mounting point manually
