    Hi Diomedes1905,

    It seems a package 'e2fsprogs' has not installed yet or it had installed but has broken...
    Please check it first.

    Is there data on the drive that you want top preserve? If not, just delete the partition and start from scratch.

    Hmm..., then why does the Warning say "The following list of software packages is required for ext4 file system support: e2fsprogs v1.41+." at last sentence...
    I also don't know why though.
