Today i installed ISO on my USB through Rufus. At the end of unpacking progress it gave me a crash and now my USB is in read-only mode. I tried all ways on Windows and even something on live Ubuntu. Nothing helps.

In an Ubuntu live session you can use the MKUSB's "Restore to a standard storage device" feature.

How to install MKUSB (internet connection in the live session required):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mkusb/ppa  # and press Enter
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mkusb mkusb-nox usb-pack-efi
  • I got this error, when typed last command: "E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages." – user879571 Mar 6 '18 at 19:23
  • Do a full update/upgrade and then the last command again: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. – user772515 Mar 6 '18 at 23:10
  • Nope, its still gives me same error. The following packages have unmet dependencies: mkusb : Depends: pv but it is not installable Depends: wmctrl but it is not installable Depends: guidus but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. – user879571 Mar 7 '18 at 6:08
  • So you need to open Software & Updates and select all the repositories before proceeding. – user772515 Mar 7 '18 at 11:43
