When you receive a message that an S3 repository is not available, or is write-protected, there could be several reasons:

1. You do not have AWS credentials, or the credentials you have are not valid

  1. Check that you have a .aws directory under your home directory (e.g. C:\users\<your_login_name\.aws)
  2. If you have a .aws directory, make sure the directory contains both a config and credentials file, and check with your admin to make sure they contain valid data to enable proper access to your S3 buckets

2. There could have been a system problem that caused the Ubiq Trusted File Manager to put the Repository into read-only mode.  In this case, you will need to stop and restart the TFM.  If the problem still persists after this, contact your local Ubiq administrator, or submit a service ticket, with the  relevant information, on this portal.
