I just resized my primary partition according to the answer given in StackExchange. I used the method with
fdisk. I deleted the partition and then recreated it and as suggested in the post.
After this I rebooted my PC to update the partions table.
prompt greeted me since it couldnt find the needed linux partition. Trying to look up the data of my partition in grub using
ls (hd0,gpt6) /
reported that grub doesnt know the given file system.
And now I used a live Linux to try and figure out what caused the problem and how to fix it without loosing the data on this partition.
Looking at this partition in gparted is see that gparted is unable to identify the filesystem as well. When I run
blkid this partition doesnt even show up. But when I run
fdisk from the Live Linux it correctly identifies this partion as beeing a Linux Filesystem.

.* this partition is of interest
The partition was formatted as
ext4 and I extended it by changing the partitions starting point (this is the only thing I see beeing diffrent to the answer I followed).
