comment How to fix partition table where partitions are moved outside of drive and are overlapping?
There is nothing wrong in what you have posted so far. If you see something wrong you'll need to rewrite your question to describe it and make the question about that.

comment Why won't XScreensaver install from the command line?
You have installed xscreensaver-gl version 5.15.3, which is not published in the ubuntu archive. Ubuntu only has version 5.15.3-ubuntu1. Your version contains sonar.desktop, which conflicts with the version in xscreensaver-data-extra version 5.15-3ubuntu1. You must have installed this rogue version of xscreensaver-gl from somewhere else; possibly debian?

comment How do I change the minimum space on a partition?
The minimum size is based on how much used space you already have in the partition. In other words, you can't make it any smaller if it is 100% used.

comment Fix corrupted mSATA boot drive
You will have to be more specific. Either the image is of a whole drive, and you should dd it to the whole drive and this will result in the drive having a new partition table that should be valid, and it should contain a partition with a valid filesystem, or the image is only of one filesystem, in which case you need to dd it to an individual partition and get a valid filesystem. You should not be running fsck on the whole drive, and if you get errors running it on an individual partition, then likely the image is of the whole drive and you need to dd it to the whole drive.

comment How to fix partition table where partitions are moved outside of drive and are overlapping?
There is nothing wrong with your partition table. The partition table exists only on the whole drive, which is sda. sda1, sda2, etc are individual partitions, which do not themselves contain a partition table, so it is nonsense to run gdisk on them.

I mean that fstab does not have to end with an empty line or comment.

FYI, if you are planning on sending the output of a command to English speakers, prefix the command with LANG=C to cause it to revert to English.

comment Problem with booting Ubuntu from an external HDD
FYI, you seem to have used a backtick instead of an apostrophe, causing your question to be highlighted all wrong. Commands are quoted with backticks to make them show up like this.
