The problem is that this image is incompatible with virt-resize:

$ virt-builder ubuntu-20.04
$ virt-filesystems -a ubuntu-20.04.img --all -l -h
Name       Type        VFS   Label  MBR  Size  Parent
/dev/sda1  filesystem  vfat  -      -    511M  -
/dev/sda5  filesystem  ext4  -      -    5.3G  -
/dev/sda1  partition   -     -      0b   512M  /dev/sda
/dev/sda2  partition   -     -      05   1.0K  /dev/sda
/dev/sda5  partition   -     -      83   5.5G  /dev/sda
/dev/sda   device      -     -      -    6.0G  -

Note the root filesystem is on a logical partition (/dev/sda5) which
virt-resize cannot handle:

https://libguestfs.org/virt-resize.1.html#logical-partitions

I wonder if there's a way to make Ubuntu templates that don't use
logical partitions?
