Here's the relevant bit from the partman log with the exact error: /lib/partman/commit.d/30parted: IN: COMMIT =dev=md1 parted_server: Read command: COMMIT parted_server: command_commit() parted_server: Opening outfifo parted_server: OUT: Error parted_server: OUT: Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/md1p1 -- Invalid argument. This means Linux won't know about any changes you made to /dev/md1p1 until you reboot -- so you shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting. Full partman log attached for future reference.
