The format supported by fdisk is the ancient DOS partition format.
I suspect you have reached its maximum size.
If this is the issue, I had the same problem on a Gentoo system some
time ago. From memory, I had to:
- rebuild the kernel with CONFIG_PARTITION_ADVANCED=y and
CONFIG_OSF_PARTITION=y (I think)
- reboot in the new kernel so that it would understand
an OSF partition
- repartition the disc with gparted (not fdisk) to use the
new partition format
- proceed as normal thereafter
This is all from memory, but essentially I needed to change partition
