A bug was fixed upstream in sfdisk on 2020-02-04. The bug prevents sfdisk dumps from being restored properly due to the addition of a new field `sector-size`. The bug was fixed by upstream commit 00e53f1 (now included in stable/2.35). It has been released as 2.35.1-2, but the release is not tagged.

It was requested that this issue be filed as a bug report / backport request and not flagged out-of-date.

Additional info:
* package version: 2.35.1-1
* link to upstream bug report:

Steps to reproduce:
$ sfdisk -d image.img > image.sfdisk
$ sfdisk image.img < image.sfdisk

The restore command results in the following error:
>>> line 7: unsupported command
