SOLVED sgdisk fails when running from new iso image

I am developing an installation program and a section of code which has worked for months suddenly began to fail. Upon closer inspection the issue lies with sgdisk:

sgdisk -Z "$disk1"

Problem opening 7qd for reading! Error is 2
The specified file does not exist!
Problem opening ' ' for writing! Program will now terminate.
Warning! MBR not overwritten! Error is 2!

If I bypass that code I get the following error later on:

sgdisk -n 1:2MiB:+1GiB -t 1:EF00 "$disk1"

Problem opening eR{.U for reading! Error is 2
The specified file does not exist!

This is running from a booted ISO that I had just made with archiso. An ISO that I made two days ago runs with no issues.

Something has changed with the last 48 hours but I am not certain what it is yet.

btrfs-progs versioned yesterday but I never reach that part of the code.

If it helps here is my code which is running ok on a previous ISO image.

#!/usr/bin/env bash

# error handling
set -Euo pipefail

# stubs
print() { tput setaf 2 ; echo -e "\n\t$1\n" ; tput sgr0 ; }
alert() { tput setaf 1 ; echo -e "\n\t$1\n" ; tput sgr0 ; }

# display error data and exit
trap '{ alert "${0##*/} line:$LINENO -> $BASH_COMMAND" ; exit ; }' err

usb1=$(lsblk -o NAME,PATH,FSTYPE | awk '/^sd/ && /iso9660/ {print $2}')

If you have never borked an install then you are not trying hard enough

Re: SOLVED sgdisk fails when running from new iso image

Without having any more information, that just looks like there's nonsense values in $disk1 and/or $disk2.
What is the output of that "print info" part of your script?

More importantly, what is the behaviour if you just run sgdisk normally (i.e. without any variables that we don't know anything about)?

The disk and system information when running the install are all correct:

	Disks Found:

NAME        FSTYPE  LABEL             	MOUNTPOINT
sda         iso9660 ARCH_10Nov22_1628	/run/archiso/airootfs 
├─sda1      iso9660 ARCH_10Nov22_1628 
└─sda2      vfat    ARCHISO_EFI       
nvme0n1                               
├─nvme0n1p1 vfat    GRUB                          
└─nvme0n1p2 btrfs   broot             
nvme1n1                               
├─nvme1n1p1 
└─nvme1n1p2 btrfs   broot

	System Parameters

Root disk1		/dev/nvme0n1
Root disk2		/dev/nvme1n1
USB boot		/dev/sda
Hostname		lurch

Running sgdisk manually gives the same error message as when running the script.
The disk other utilities used - wipefs, blkdiscard and partprobe all run with no errors.

If I install using the previous ISO, and then build a new ISO with no changes, the new ISO will fail in the same fashion as in my original post.

According to my logs I updated popt around the same time that I created a new ISO to test some changes to the script in question.

Nice troubleshooting

Re: SOLVED sgdisk fails when running from new iso image

The gptfdisk package versioned (1.0.9-1 -> 1.0.9-2) today and that appears to have fixed the issue.
