PARTED: Re-reading the partition table failed.: Device or resource busy 2020-01-28 12:16:37

Once you create a partition using parted and the parted tool gives such an error message, "Re-reading the partition table failed.: Device or resource busy" you will realize that the partition table is not reflected in the operating system.

For example:

Say that newly created partition is labeled as sda2. However, you will not be able to find /dev/sda2 device node under Linux. The partition is however created in the disk side. This is the bug of parted and parted (GNU parted) 2.1 suffers from it. What you need to do is upgrade parted to at least version 2.3. That will fix the problem.
