sda1 has no room to operate. Can't expand kernel & also can't do an update.

The 5Gigs unallocated should be put back on sda1 unless you removed another partition.

I have tried fsck no problems.

@Eddy1
Originally it was 20gib but I tried to expand to 5gb when I tried to add another game [8gb]. I realized it had no more space so using vmware I expanded to 5gig more. Then using gparted live I messed around trying to move it to sda1 [main], no option to move it or expand over the initial 20gb limit. So I guess it's what you said, no room to operate.

How would I do that? I messed up so I'm pretty hesitant to touch anything without any guidance. Thanks for helping.

Move sda5 to right shrink sda2 from left, extend sda1

Even after adding the 5Gigs when 8Gigs is required you would still need more room, so youwould need 8Gigs plus room for updates & additional storage for games.

Why not install your game on a different drive? Create separate partition for it or run it from an external device? I'd do the same with your downloads. Create another partition for /home & create directories downloads & games.

Ran into a similar problem with my computer, because I let Debian auto-create partitions for me. It gave me something like 9gb for root, which was way too small. Then resized another partition, had unallocated space like you have now. Moved second partition (in your case sda5) to the right with gparted and then reclamed it with primary (root), like EDDY1 says. To move to the right if you click on your partition in gparted it says something like:

xxxxx amount preceding partition
xxxxx amount size of partition
xxxxx amount after partition

something that looks and sounds like this. Make sure that the amount after partition is 0 and the size of partition stays the same. Logically the amount of space preceding your sda5 would increase. And you can just 'paste' it onto sda1, ignoring the warnings.
