I think we need a full problem report to attempt an answer.  See the

If you're not trying to mount '/usr/bin' yourself, and you shouldn't
be, then '/usr/bin' should be mounted.  It happens for you automatically.
We need to know why you think it's not mounted and what your system
configuration is.  Otherwise, if you are trying to mount it yourself,
don't do that.  Doing so causes blindness. ;-)
