I’ve followed this article in order to resize an attached volume’s size. https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/volumes/how-to/increase-size/ After resizing it on DigitalOcean, I figured out that my volume’s partition is ext4. so according to the article, I’ve entered this command:
sudo resize2fs /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-0DO_Volume_volume-nyc3-02
The result is:
old_desc_blocks = 7, new_desc_blocks = 13 resize2fs: Permission denied to resize filesystem
What did I do wrong?

Found the solution:
If on Ubuntu:
To resize the partition, use the growpart command. In this command, /dev/vda is the name of the disk, separated by a space, and followed by the number of the partition to resize, 1.
For ext3/4 filesystems, use resize2fs to resize the filesystem.
I know this is old question, but for anyone coming from Google Search: If you’re using XFS, you only need to run this command to extend the filesystem to use the additional space:
sudo xfs_growfs /mnt/my_volume_01
