Considering reinstall of on ubuntu, what are the best way?

Hi there.

Since I’m unable to expand the to small partition , I intend to set up a new VM with a bigger drive and install ubuntu server +

Last time this was my steps:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https
sudo apt-get install ca-certificates 
sudo apt-get install curl
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
curl -fsSL | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-key fingerprint 0EBFCD88
sudo add-apt-repository \
   "deb [arch=amd64] \
   $(lsb_release -cs) \
sudo apt-get update

But connected to it I have a UZB1 with a z-wave network, and a RFXtrx443E,

So, how do I manage to reinstall with as little pain as possible? (and what to backup, all the config files i assume?

You can resize partitions just fine.

I recommend booting a Live Distro (Xubuntu iso for example), and use GParted to resize your partitions, then you can use your LV commands to expand the LV.
