Before things getting said twice (looks that there is some
public interest here ;-) ):

Can you please rerun and skip the partition part of
the loop device for fdisk -l?
E.g. instead of /dev/loop0p1 just /dev/loop0?
(This was my original intend but maybe not correctly

Also can you please send the parameters passed to parted?
(When running with trace enabled
this should be written to the logs. Please run something like
   export DIB_DEBUG_TRACE="255"
   disk-image-create -o /tmp/ubuntu.qcow2 --image-size=10 ubuntu vm | tee o.log
and send the output of
   grep parted o.log


To be on the same page, here are the other infos Jay send:

ii  python-dib-utils 0.0.6-1
ii  python-diskimage-builder 1.0.0-1

Yes, it's a UEFI-enabled host:

BootOrder: 0000,0002,0001
