    That tutorial is garbage. You will find any info you need in our official guide here in the forum.

    Ignore the "change user to pi" part you have read about in the other tutorial and read the "Mounting USB Drives" section.

    Do you have a Raspberry Pi 2/3? Then your distribution is armhf and the "ARMv7" section is the correct one for you.
