You do not say anything about what type of system this is. Please do always 
provide that information!

There is basically nothing at all in the partman log about /dev/sda.
This makes it most likely that libparted just does not recognize your 
partition table.

A few questions before we reassign this report to libparted:
- to check if the drive itself (and the partition table) are correctly
  identified by the kernel: what's the output of 'dmesg | grep sda'
- to check if libparted is the problem: could you check (using some
  life CD for example) if the utility 'parted' recognizes the table
