View Full Version : [ubuntu] e2fsck: Get a newer version of e2fsck!

I am trying to check/fix certain HDD filesystem however encountered this issue.

$ sudo fsck -M /dev/sda5
[sudo] password for user:
fsck from util-linux 2.27.1
e2fsck 1.42.13 (17-May-2015)
/dev/sda5 has unsupported feature(s): metadata_csum
e2fsck: Get a newer version of e2fsck!

What should I do? The HDD contains Ubuntu 18.04. I ran the above fsck command from a different storage disk that uses Ubuntu 16.04.

I think this post might contain the answer for you:

Seems it boils down to a version compatibility problem.
