Did you recently change the partition table on that device?  That will
sometimes cause the kernel to be out of sync with the device.

You can trigger the Linux kernel to re-read the partition tables by
using a few different tools.  One of them is partprobe from the parted

  # apt-get install parted

  # partprobe /dev/sdb
