My disk is partitioned like this:


Every time I run any command (mount, format, delete partition,...), I get this:


The actual disk layout itself is not affected: no problems in GParted or CLI. The problem persist until reboot (logout or lightdm restart does not help).


  1. reinstalling package
  2. reinstalling again with dependencies
  3. purging, then installing

All for naught.

Also, the app crashes when partitioning, SMART testing, or making images mid-way. It detects various SMART errors, all of them are false.

I am not dual-booting Windows.

    This sounds like a bug. I suggest you report it. It's probably a display bug within the program, but just in case it's more serious, you may want to avoid this program until the bug is fixed. – Rod Smith Mar 29 '17 at 13:29
  • @RodSmith There already is one – steeef Mar 29 '17 at 15:50

Thanks to Rod Smith in the comments I found a bug report

Now we wait...

    If you've got a Launchpad account, there should be a link near the top-left of the bug report that reads "This bug affects {n} people. Does this bug affect you?" Click it and select "Yes, it affects me" from the pop-up. This will increase the count of people affected by the bugs, which increases its "heat" value, which increases the odds that somebody will fix it. Providing useful diagnostics -- especially information requested by developers -- will also help. – Rod Smith Mar 29 '17 at 18:19
  • @RodSmith That was the first thing I did. I also added a comment – steeef Mar 29 '17 at 18:28
