Subject: [gentoo-user] Errors in nonexistent partitions

1 Morning all,
3 My ~amd64 system uses partitions 1 to 18 on /dev/nvme0n1, and it has two SATA
4 disks as well, for various purposes. Today, after I'd taken the system down
5 for its weekly backup (I tar all the partitions to a USB disk) and started up
6 again, invoking gparted to look around, libparted spat out a list of
7 partitions from 19 to 128 which, it said, "have been written but we have been
8 unable to inform the kernel of the change..."
10 I remerged gparted, parted, libparted and udisks, then booted another system
11 and ran fsck -f on all the partitions from 4 to 18 - those that this system
12 uses - and rebooted. No change - the same complaint from libparted.
14 I get a similar complaint about /dev/sda.
16 Those errors are repeated once.
18 Is this a terminal condition? I could repartition and restore from backup, but
19 I hope someone can offer a clue before I resort to that.
