An index goes into read-only mode when the flood stage is hit for a node.

As you can see :

The index block is automatically released when the disk utilization falls below the high watermark post ES version 7.4

but as your ES version is lower than 7 , you will need to clear the usage first so that it goes below 90% then change the index setting manually for your ES version to fix the issue.
