What version of libguestfs and what host are you running it on?

You could try a couple of things:

(1) Use:

  virt-filesystems -a /vm/images/archlinux/archlinux.qcow2 --all --long -h

to list out the filesystems in the image, then try mounting them
manually, as in this example, note the -m options which you will need
to adjust according to the output of virt-filesystems:

  guestmount -a /vm/images/archlinux/archlinux.qcow2 \
    -m /dev/vg/lv:/ -m /dev/sda1:/boot \

(The error message indicates you are lacking Augeas, which we use to
examine the disk image for the right mountpoints, so you'd have to do
that by hand.)

(2) Set the following envionment variables and run the original
guestmount command again:
