Enable SMART on Old External Seagate SSD Ubuntu 20.10

I have an old external seagate ssd 2TB for backup called "BUP Slim BL". It was a challenge to enable the SMART capability on Ubuntu 20.10.

You might give this a go: sudo smartctl -d sat -T permissive --smart=on /dev/sda1

If that does not work, you might need:

echo options usb-storage quirks=$(lsusb | awk '/Seagate/ {print $6}'):u | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/ignore_uas.conf
sudo update-initramfs -u

Run test: sudo smartctl -d sat -t short -a /dev/sda1

-t short or long test.
