Looking at the parted log it's the parted server that fails and 50format_efi
not really handling the error it seems last few lines in the log are:
parted_server: OUT: Timer
parted_server: OUT: 0 (null)
.../50format_efi: error_handler: exception with type Timer
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/parted/+bug/1306704 looks related but
should already be fixed in debian starting with version -20.
