is your problem: allocation of physical extents on /dev/dm-0 is turned
off. You can turn it on again with 'pvchange -x y /dev/dm-0', although
you might want to find out why allocation has been turned off. I'm not
familiar with what, if any, conditions cause it to be turned of

(This question is probably off-topic for debian-security.)

I believe it should already be unlocked, as otherwise you wouldn't be
able to see any of its contents. That said, I think that the encryption
is probably not related to your problem.
