I am trying to upgrade my ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04 but due to lack of space in my Ubuntu installed drive I was unable to proceed the process further and also I had 30 GB of unallocated space free in my computer. I used Gparted software from my Live USB and used it to move and shrink /dev/sda6 to get about 30 GB of unallocated space in the side of /dev/sda5. After the completion of moving and shrinking I tried to expand my ubuntu drive /dev/sda5 using move/resize option but in the middle of the process some error came and didnt allow the process to go further.
Then after a fresh reboot again opened Gparted from my Live USB but now its showing some error in my ubuntu partition(/dev/sda5) which is the same initial size and dosent allow me to expand the partition.
I also tried to fix the root partition using this
sudo touch /forcefsck sudo reboot
but it didnt reported any error. What should I do now? what happended to the unallocated space I can see it in the image but its not inside sda5?
sudo fdisk -l

Now when I start gparted its giving this error (libparted bug found)
Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/sda4 -- Device or resource busy. This means Linux won't know about any changes you made to /dev/sda4 until you reboot -- so you shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting.
