Prior to your last update you had text mode (DOS mode) mounts.  When you
updated you chose UNIX mode mounts.  The easiest thing to do is to run
setup again and choose DOS mode to convert back to text mode mounts.
Executing setup again will not download or install any files unless
something had errors or a new or updated package was added since you last
executed it.
