Check file system on /dev/sda5 for errors and (if possible) fix them ( ERROR )

Move /dev/sda8 to the right and shrink it from 4.67 GiB to 4.39 GiB

Grow /dev/sda7 from 23.28 GiB to 121.22 GiB


Solution:1

Well, right after the ERROR line it says

/dev/sda5 has unsupported feature(s): metadata_csum  e2fsck: Get a newer version of e2fsck!  

So there's your problem.

It looks like you're running a debian live iso? I can't tell but it looks like their version (from stable or old-stable or even older) of e2fsck just doesn't support your partition.

You can check the version of e2fsck by running e2fsck -V or check with a package manager like Synaptic, and possibly upgrade it there.

Or you can download a newer live ISO.
