I have had EXACTLY the same issue as others in this thread, AND my compliments to Mr. Hailey's_Comet . . . the only thing I would add to the line is sudo. But the resize2fs command IS the one that SOLVED my problem. Compliments again to HC.
I found this solution by searching on the clause "Either the superblock or the partition table is likely to be corrupt
" . . . the message from a forced fsck. I had tried TestDisk and a few other remedies that DIDN'T work.
For those of us that mess around with GParted trying to shrink partitions and screw up, this is a likely solution (or at least it was for me and a few others here.) Thanks very much HC.
