I appreciate that you're in a sticky situation but this is more of a technical question than a bug as such, so I'm converting this bug report to a technical question.

To anyone else, look at the bug report for a photo of the error message.

May be some hard-disk errors on your ext3 partitions make it mounting as read only...
So please boot your pc from an Ubuntu live install cd and make a fsck of your partitions.

Booting from live cd to see your partitions open a terminal and type:

sudo fdisk -l

To check the partition without correct errors...

sudo fsck -n /dev/...

To automatic fix errors:

fsck -a -y /dev/...

To get more fsck otions and usage:

man fsck

Please run fsck more than once on the same partition...

Hope this helps
