I was unable to install eOS and it popped this error

https://termbin.com/bpb6
These are the logs. I dont remember what it exactly said in the error meesage.

P.S I already have eOS installed on /sda6 I am trying to move it to my SSD as I eOS is my main OS and I hardly use windows anymore. If there’s a better way to do that please let me know. Thanks!

Please post the output of

sudo parted -l

and give as much detailed information as possible on what options did you choose in the installer.

If possible, post screenshots for your disks. You could open Gparted, choose the disk you want to install to from the drop-down menu on top right and take a shot.

I was unable to get to the page where you select packages as the target partition wasn’t clickable. So I checked gparted and tried to format it but wasn’t able to. I noticed that my EFI system partition was mounted alongside the target partition. So I unmounted the EFI partition and tried to do the same with the target part. but wasn’t able to. I tried rebooting and now I’m stuck here when I try to boot into my original eOS

I think I increased the problem :sweat_smile:

The message says that you need to run fsck on /dev/sda6 manually.

  1. Boot up your live usb.
  2. Launch Gparted.
  3. Make sure /dev/sda6 is unmounted: no lock icon beside it
  4. Right click on the partition and choose Check. Apply the operation from the tool bar :white_check_mark:

I followed what @joekamprad said and was successfully able to install eOS on my SSD. I booted into that and ran gparted and there’s no lock icon next to it. How do I fix that?

I also want to duplicate my home folder to the current install. How do I do that

There shouldn’t be. That means the partition is unmounted.
If you need to fix the issue with /dev/sda6, follow the instructions given above.

For “duplicating” your home directory, I would suggest a copy-paste approach of your personal data and also config files and folders. The latter, I would personally do on a per case basis, that is whenever I install an application and need the configuration from my previous install I copy it over.
