comment How to use SQL in terminal?
Actually, the syntax you specified only connects to the specified database, it doesn't create it. You'll have to first connect without specifying a database and run CREATE DATABASE [dbname]. Furthermore, if you specify the password on the command line (not recommended, the syntax is mysql -u user_name -ppassword database, without the space between p and your password. You can also omit the password here and MySQL will prompt you for it, which is safer.

comment Automounted USB devices are read only
Open a terminal and type dmesg right after plugging in the drive, and a few of the last lines should have information on the device detection. Or you can copy/paste the whole output (censor if needed) on Pastebin and share the link here.

Could you paste/link the relevant part of dmesg output from when you plug in or mount the drive?

It's not a backup, it's an import (has <instead of >). The SQL file is loaded into the specified database.

comment How does my sys admin know that I haven't rebooted my system?
I doubt that this is the case, because the user would have to reboot twice if the updates require a reboot after installing, and if there are no updates that require a reboot, the sysadmin could just remotely run that same script and update in the background. Without knowing more, I'd guess that there was a kernel image upgrade (or something other requiring a reboot), and the user had to reboot to apply the new kernel. But this is just guesswork.
