I thought I covered this on an earlier message - /dev/sdf is the
entire drive, and what fdisk needs to look at. /dev/sdf1 is a
partition, and does NOT have the partition table. This is what fdisk
is trying to tell you.

On a side note - you normally put the option first, and then the
device. In this case, it does not matter, but with some programs it
does.
