Rclone 1.62.2 Fatal error: failed to mount FUSE fs:

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Upgraded to v1.62.2 and getting error when trying to mount on sever; could you please provide steps to downgrade to previous version.

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

You need to install the fuse3 package.

I think it isn't available for 18.04 but what you can do is symlink fusermount to fusermount3 and that will fix it.

Thank you for your response, install fuse3 and then use this command?

ln -s /bin/fusermount /bin/fusermount3

Could you please expand, read the post, I'm new to this
-install fuse3 on top of fuse and then use the command;
-ln -s /bin/fusermount /bin/fusermount3

if you can install fuse3, then no need for symlink.
if you cannot install fuse3, then need symlink.

I have ubuntu 18.04, fuse 3 doesn't work there, I need to symlink.
where do I download fuse3?



I get this;
root@ns1011594:~# sudo apt install fuse3

Package fuse3 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'fuse3' has no installation candidate

that in an old version of ubuntu, does not support fuse3 as a pre-compiled package.

from what we discussed, you have two choices.
--- create the symink.
--- install fuse3. as documented at the fuse github page.
