gpt(8) cannot change the type of a partition.  To change the type,
you have to delete the partition and re-add it with the same offset,
size, and label as the old.  That's too time-consuming and risky.
Scan the manual for a simple way to modify a partition's type.  You
won't find it.
Add a "modify" command?
