[Solved] linux ext4 partitions show up as "Microsoft basic data" type

I have no Microsoft partitions in my system nor dual boot (i run Windows in VirtualBox) yet not sure when this changed (update in November?) all my linux ext4 partitions show up as "Microsoft basic data" types (except BIOS boot and Swap) in fdisk -l (also in Gnome Disk utility gui, just shows "Basic data" instead of the actual Linux type. All the searching in Arch Wiki's I've found refer to dual boot systems so far and haven't turned up anything useful in Google yet either. How to i get this corrected? All drives are GPT:

Re: [Solved] linux ext4 partitions show up as "Microsoft basic data" type

I apologize Jason, i need to get educated on that, I don't understand the wiki link and haven't a clue on how to get the desired paste option although i know what it looks like from other posts. Is it a package i need to install or just use a link like "https://gist.github.com/" ?
this maybe? https://gist.github.com/anonymous/9499808ce9694e3a9bbe

If you quote this, you will see how to use the code tag.
Can you post the output from the

$ lsblk -f

command.

Re: [Solved] linux ext4 partitions show up as "Microsoft basic data" type

is it something amiss with gptfdisk 0.8.10-1 version then? lsblk -f gets it right other than lsblk doesn't recognize bios boot partition other than a partition exists
