I can't see any obvious error.

I'll just note for your investigations that this drive:

>     -drive file=/tmp/.guestfs-1001/root.5377,snapshot=on,if=virtio,cache=unsa

is a temporary file; the real file is '/tmp/.guestfs-1001/root'.

This should be mapped to /dev/vdc in the appliance, and it appears to
be.

It should be an ext2 "naked" filesystem, no partition table, just the
straight filesystem in a file.  It should contain lots of
ordinary-looking Ubuntu files (/bin/ls etc).  And crucially it should
contain an executable /init script.  /init's first line is #!/bin/sh
so /bin/sh must also exist in that image (must be executable etc).
