Read-Only Filesystem after Upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04

I panicked for a moment, not that it’s a big deal (backups, and backups of backups) but I still didn’t really want to dick with it. Apparently the UUID had changed (or something, I dunno, I didn’t really look much into it) but all that was necessary was to get the UUID of the disk (blkid), remount to rw (mount -o remount, rw /), and then edit /etc/fstab to reflect the correct UUID. Once that’s done, reboot, and all seems well.
