You probably need to go into fdisk and change the partition type of
sda9 from "0" to "83" (or any other non-zero type). There is a
reason that it is saying "omitting empty partition (9)" at boot,
and "fdisk -l" doesn't list it - because type "0" means "I don't exist".

In fdisk, use the "t" option to set the type of sda9.

Cheers, Andreas
