How did you try to partition it ?. Tell us exactly what you did, in detail.

Do you still have the USB you installed Ubuntu from ?. If so, the likely fix is to boot that USB and undo the partition changes you did. Hopefully it'll be that simple.
After you did the partition changes, did you create a new filesystem ?.

Please post the precise error message, with some context if possible.

It looks like you have not provided enough disk space.
