This doesn't make much sense to me - looking inside

It would be good to either avoid whatever problem we're hitting, or
improve the error in this case, but without understanding what is
happening, that's hard to do.
(The background is that libuuid used to be part of e2fsprogs, but got
split out, so on a modern distro it's a separate package, but for an
older distro you may want e2fsprogs.)
