As mentioned in your initial post, you already have 4 partitions  /, /var,
/home, swap and one extended partition (sda4).  From the above output, it
looks clear that there is no additional free space available to install a
dual distro.

Better post the content of 'fstab' here to know the mount points and its
filesystems.
