Trying to increase home directory so I have enough room to do-release-upgrade. (It is the Home directories that need more space right? Most explanations don't make that clear.) Able to boot Gparted ISO. I grew /sd2 and /sd5 to maximum (well after the third time of nothing happening).

Nothing changes on my Ubuntu VM. Everything is backed up.

It looks like you have used LVM (and possibly LUKS encryption) when you installed Ubuntu. You will need to resize the LVM which resides inside `/dev/sda5`, which resides inside `/dev/sda2`. Within the LVM you will need to expand the `/dev/mapper/INMLDSERV01--vg-root` **not the home**.

Please be aware that Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, which was released in 2018-April (thus the 18.04) had 5 years of *standard* support life, is nearing the end of those five years. You can use `ubuntu-support-status` to confirm if your system is still *supported*. Either way, if the machine is on-line, you should plan to *release-upgrade* asap unless you plan to use ESM/Pro, but please note ESM/Pro releases are not on-topic here when standard support ends. *Also check your details; you're not using an actual valid OS given your details unless typo*
I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
