growpart: command not found

When trying to resize a disk on Debian 8, I got the following error

root@rescue:~# growpart /dev/nvme0n1 1
-bash: growpart: command not found

Fixed by installing cloud-utils package

apt install cloud-utils

On newer versions of Debian/Ubuntu, you need to install cloud-guest-utils package.

apt install cloud-guest-utils

On RHEL/AlmaLinux/CentOS, growpart command is provided by the package cloud-utils-growpart to install, run the command:

yum install cloud-utils-growpart
