I'm not sure about your error, but I would merge sda[6789] into a single
partition.  Splitting a disk and then putting it back together in
software just adds an unnecessary load to your system (only one Physcial
Volume per disk).  In other words, sda6 should go from 16845.016 to
38154.000.  Getting there may be a challenge, though ;-)

Taking a stab at your problem, I would first look to see if you've
exclude sda3 from LVM.  I am guessing that you haven't, and that LVM is
trying to read a PV id off sda3.
