Rclone installation issue

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Hi, I am trying to install rclone in my balenaFin. I followed the installation instructions:https://rclone.org/install/#linux-installation-from-precompiled-binary.
However, it always generated error when copying binary files.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

balenaOS (Linux)

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

Google drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

cp rclone /usr/bin/

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

cp: cannot create regular file '/usr/bin/rclone': Read-only file system

I tried with

> root@6f5afca:/tmp/rclone-v1.53.1-linux-amd64# mount -o remount,rw /usr
> mount: /usr: mount point not mounted or bad option.

That looks like an docker'ish OS that you might need to install via a docker container as you don't have the ability to write to the local OS files. I'm not familiar/have never heard of that OS before. You could try asking on their forums/searching there on how to install an application.

Use the mount command to find which partition to remount. It is probably / rather than /usr
