Mounted Partition cant be written

Here is the problem
I have 3 ntfs partition. two of those were not auto mounted through /etc/fstab, but one was (shown in attached picture). All of these 3 partition can be written in ot.
Last night I ran update sudo pacman -Syu and after reboot none of these 3 partition can be written in to anymore.
Below I attached the screenshot of the auto-mounted partition (it's /etc/fstab; its properties)

Please help, thanks.

Check in pamac history what changed, or use last snapshot to fix for the moment.
I can't read nothing, in this picture, please, post terminal only as text see below.

Please do not post your fstab as a picture.

Post as text:

cat /etc/fstab

Also if dual booting Windows be sure fastboot is disabled.

You can also check the Arch Wiki on using the ntfsfix command.

It would be a good idea if you have Windows installed to check the partitions for errors in Windows.

If you don't have Windows installed then get rid of the NTFS partitions and use a proper Linux filesystem such as ext4 for storage.

Please post text-based information as text, thanks.

That screenshot is all but impossible to read.

Okay, I will remember to put only the information from terminal

By the way, I did what tbg suggested, and when I restarted the partition is writeable again.
