    Is d what we call /dev/sda3 ?

    The partition you made to install Ubuntu, is this /dev/sda4 ?

    or other, please explain.

    You can use 'testdisk' to convert sda5 back to sda4. If block # 10533 "part of sda3" has needed data for some program or file it is lost. Block #10533 now contains the extended boot record, what I do not know is if it is only the one sector or the whole track '63 sectors' that would be corrupted.

    If you decide to use 'testdisk' be sure to read the How-to-use first. TestDisk - CGSecurity

    Will let others say just what is the best linux tool cd to use for 'testdisk'. Let other posters comment on use of 'testdisk', they may need more info. to be on the safe side or have a different program to use.

    What type of data is on sda3 ?
    Did you start partition resizing and quit in the middle of operation ? I can not understand just how any partitioning tool would do what it did, unless it was stopped by an error or user.

    TestDisk is an excellent tool, I would prefer to see more info first, But you can supply a lot of that info by choosing to log.
    And not applying the changes, Instead let us know what TestDisk finds. and show us it's log.

    If you fave anything that you want to save backed up, and know the backup works.

    You could try running test disk with the directions here TestDisk Step By Step - CGSecurity

    You could also edit the partition table with fdisk so that /dev/sda4 starts at 14357 It would be a good idea to read
    Code:
    man fdisk
    to understand how this works.
