Bug#219829: autopartkit: confusing error message when there are no drives to partition

Package: autopartkit
Severity: normal
Tags: d-i

If autopartkit can't find any drives to partition (say, a SCSI-only
system where the SCSI card was not properly detected), it dies with the
following (rather confusing) error message:

  Could not stat device autopartkit/device_name doesn't exist - No such
  file or directory.

However, on syslog it gives something like "Could not find any disks to
partition!" which would probably be much more sane as an error
presented to the user.
