MacOS Mojave 10.14.6 Processor: 2.8 GHt Intel Core i7 Memory 16 GB

I want to partition my Disk because I want to try to install Linux-Ubuntu. For this I'm following this tutorial.

In Disk utility I clicked on the main volume > partition > partition but the following message appears:

This container has 915.81 GB used space.
Its minimum size is 1 TB.
This container cannot be split because the resulting containers would be too small.

And I cannot click on the + button to partition the disk

I then tried the following:

  • I then tried to make some space and deleted around 300+ GB of data and have now 439 GB (when I go to apple button (above left) > About this Mac > Storage). However, in Disk utility the amount of free memory didn't change and is still only around 85GB and it is still not possible to partition the disk.

  • I deleted 2/3 automatic time machine backups with

tmutil listlocalsnapshots /
tmutil deletelocalsnapshots ...
  • deactivated the automatic time machine backups with
sudo tmutil disable localsnapshot

What should I do?

EDIT

Here is the screenshot from diskutil where the problem is appearing:
