    All the other ways to fix the type of errors in a partition table are not for new users. Lots of command line.

    Have you run fixparts following the instructions on the fixparts site? That should fix partition table.

    If not post this which you ran as the backup of your partition table before:

    sudo sfdisk -d /dev/sda
