    Hi pdlethbridge.

    All your file systems appear to be ext4.

    Sorry if I'm misunderstanding the question.

    If it's working, that's the best part.

    One of the advantages of gpt over the 30 year old MBR(msdos) is that you do not have primary, extended and logical partitions. You just have partitions. But at the rate you are going you may run into the new limit of 128 partitions.
    I think some utilities may run out of numbers first.

    If you are installing Ubuntu in BIOS mode you have to have a tiny 1MB unformatted bios_grub partition any where on drive. And if booting with UEFI the first partition is supposed to be the efi partition for boot files.
