I am trying to install Leap 15.1 on the computer which has currently CentOS 7. Storage is LVM-based (no encryption), and everything aside from the root partition should be preserved (/home, /backup, and some other data volumes).
When I run the installer, it doesn't recognize /dev/sdb1 drive (which is one PV in the LVM VG), although when I switch to the console (Ctrl-Alt-F2) lvs, pvs, vgs et al. see it just fine.

sosreport from the system in question (generated in CentOS 7)
parted reports an error for sdb. From the logs:
Error: Can't have a partition outside the disk!
Thanks for the report!
The sosreport contains only a md5sum output. Did you mean to attach the actual archive?

OK, but are we able to tell more? In particular,
is this a hard error that should be reported to the user, preventing installation, or,
is it an irregularity in parted output that we should accommodate and continue?

Whoops! It is on https://mcepl.fedorapeople.org/tmp/sosreport-narcis-2020-04-04-utgvxap.tar.xz (apparently, it is too large for the attachment here). The checksum should still apply.
