sudo: unable to open /var/lib/sudo/"My User Name"/0: Read-only file system 
W: Not using locking for read only lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock
E: Unable to write to /var/cache/apt/  
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

When I make a Folder the error dialog in the details with Nautilus is this:
