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.
