I am not sure this is the solution to the problem (I am still searching Google
for a clear answer and learning to be honest ...).
man umount
Note  that  a  file  system cannot be unmounted when it is ‘busy’ - for
example, when there are open files on it, or when some process has  its
working  directory  there,  or  when  a swap file on it is in use.  The
offending process could even be umount itself - it opens libc, and libc
in  its  turn may open for example locale files.  A lazy unmount avoids
this problem.
umount -f -l
