Either the disk, or the partition is damaged, in which case, replacing it would be neccessary; or
and I can’t remember #3 just now. It’ll come to me; and
the drive is mounted as read-only, and considering:
sudo mount -t ntfs3 -o ro /dev/sdb3 /mnt/temp
… the -o ro in the command, it is most likely that. Try changing the command to:
sudo mount -t ntfs3 -o rw /dev/sdb3 /mnt/temp
Should only be necessary for the mount command, not the mkdir command, unless you’re trying to use a live environment, in which case you’re going to have a very bad time, as a live environment isn’t persistent.
So first make sure you’re not trying to use a live environment.
mount: /mnt/temp: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb3, missing codepage or helper program, or other error.
dmesg(1) may have more information after failed mount system call.
mount: (hint) your fstab has been modified, but systemd still uses
the old version; use ‘systemctl daemon-reload’ to reload.
I’ve seen many issues with the in-kernel ntfs3 drivers, so let’s try moving to ntfs-3g instead. Install is from the extra repositories:
pamac install ntfs-3g
And then try mounting with the following command:
sudo mount -t ntfs-3g -o rw /dev/sdb3 /mnt/temp
if that didn’t work, please provide the output of:
When posting terminal output, copy the output and paste it here, wrapped in three (3) backticks, beforeANDafter the pasted text. Like this:
Or three (3) tilde signs, like this:
This will just cause it to be rendered like this:
eget nisl elit id
arcu erat varius
cursus sem quis eros.
Instead of like this:
Sed sollicitudin dolor eget nisl elit id condimentum arcu erat varius cursus sem quis eros.
Alternatively, paste the text you wish to format as terminal output, select all pasted text, and click the </> button on the taskbar. This will indent the whole pasted section with one TAB, causing it to render the same way as described above.
Thereby increasing legibility thus making it easier for those trying to provide assistance.

If your language isn’t English, please prepend any and all terminal commands with LC_ALL=C. For example:
This will just cause the terminal output to be in English, making it easier to understand and debug.
