ubuntu-vg isn't the logical volume.  That is the volume group (which
probably doesn't even create a device node).  You probably want
/dev/ubuntu-vg/root (assuming a somewhat typical udev configuration).
You can also run lvdisplay with no options which should tell you what
path the device node can be found at.
