OK, so testing this, with checkbox 0.13.7 installed, I ran the test command from the above command. It failed with something relating to udisks not being present. It seems that the usb tests require udisks, so I installed, then retested.

I got a failure and this blurb in the submission.xml file:

Then I upgraded to checkbox 0.13.8:

$ dpkg --list 'checkbox*'
Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold
| Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend

ii checkbox 0.13.8 System testing application
ii checkbox-cli 0.13.8 Command line interface for checkbox
un checkbox-gtk <none> (no description available)

On rerunning the test command, the result is now passed:

I'll mark this bug verification-done, with the comments that udisks needs to be present (not a problem for ubuntu desktop but may be needed explicitly on server or variants), and the test command needed a minor tweak as it was referring to an incorrect job.
