Read-only File system error - Learn Bash by Building a Boilerplate - Build a Boilerplate

Tell us what’s happening:
I stepped away from my training session to do some other tasks and it when I returned, the session appears to still be active, but whenever I attempt to create a new file it responds with an error that the file system is set to read-only.

Your code so far

codeally@c52b8fca940f:~/project/website$ mkdir images
bash: /home/codeally/project/freeCodeCamp/test/.next_command: Read-only file system
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘images’: Read-only file system
bash: /home/codeally/project/freeCodeCamp/test/.next_command: Read-only file system
bash: /home/codeally/project/freeCodeCamp/test/.cwd: Read-only file system
bash: /home/codeally/project/freeCodeCamp/test/.next_command: Read-only file system

Updated the title to be more specific. I keep running into errors of different kinds, so to better track them on the forum, I will make separate threads for each issue.

A similar issue was reported in the original support thread, however it doesn’t appear that it was officially resolved in any real way. The OP’s resolution explanation doesn’t make sense from a technical perspective since the user was connected to a remote VM session.

There should be a better explanation for why this is occurring and what the proper resolution steps are.

For me, although I don’t consider it a resolution since it has happened more than once, the problem seems to be temporarily resolved the next day.
