When I do a both extended and short self-test it tells me "self-test failed" as the overall assessment. Result is "Last self-test failed (read)".
What does that indicate?

The filesystem had an error, which your mount options allowed to
remount that filesystem read-only, so that you could coem back and
repair the problem. You might have more data in a log somewhere, but
it is possible that the /var/log filesystem got remounted read-only
before an error was generated.
Do the SMART tools tell you anything about the device /var/log is on?
