I have an external hard disk encrypted by APFS

$ sudo diskutil apfs list
APFS Containers (2 found)

+-- Container disk1 ...

+-- Container ERROR -69808
    ======================
    APFS Container Reference:     disk5
    Size (Capacity Ceiling):      ERROR -69620
    Capacity In Use By Volumes:   ERROR -69620
    Capacity Not Allocated:       ERROR -69620
    |
    +-< Physical Store disk4s2 692A79D2-EAB3-4DCB-9AAA-79CF9157DB03
    |   -----------------------------------------------------------
    |   APFS Physical Store Disk:   disk4s2

    |
    +-> No Volumes

After running:

$ diskutil repairVolume disk4s2
Started file system repair on disk4s2
Repairing storage system
Performing fsck_apfs -y -x /dev/disk4s2
Checking the container superblock
Storage system check exit code is 0
Finished file system repair on disk4s2

and

$ diskutil repairVolume disk5
Started file system repair on disk5
Repairing storage system
Performing fsck_apfs -y -x /dev/disk4s2
Checking the container superblock
Storage system check exit code is 0
Finished file system repair on disk5

It still shows the same error:

+-- Container ERROR -69808

    APFS Container Reference:     disk5
    Size (Capacity Ceiling):      ERROR -69620

Anything else I can do?
