Ubuntu: GParted Getting error when resizing main partition



Question:

Never mind! Found the solution! I just exited the live CD and then booted up to my OS. Then I downloaded GParted and then I was able to resize the partitions.

For some reason, when I try to extend my sda1 partition into my unallocated region, it says it encounters an error. I tried to turn swap off and disabled boot in sda1, but nothing worked. Here is the error log:

========================================

GParted 0.25.0 --enable-libparted-dmraid --enable-online-resize    Libparted 3.2  Grow /dev/sda1 from 18.00 GiB to 218.00 GiB  00:00:00    ( ERROR )    calibrate /dev/sda1  00:00:00    ( SUCCESS )    path: /dev/sda1 (partition)  start: 2048  end: 37750783  size: 37748736 (18.00 GiB)  check file system on /dev/sda1 for errors and (if possible) fix them  00:00:00    ( ERROR )    e2fsck -f -y -v -C 0 /dev/sda1  00:00:00    ( ERROR )    e2fsck 1.42.13 (17-May-2015)  /dev/sda1 has unsupported feature(s): metadata_csum  e2fsck: Get a newer version of e2fsck!  

========================================

I tried a quick google, but I couldn't find anyone who asked this before. I also tried to google how to update e2fsck, but I had no luck either. Sorry if this may seem rather obvious, I'm still a noob when it comes to Linux. This is also a virtual machine btw (If you need this info to help me). Thanks a bunch!
