Ok, this steps are correct. Does 'onevm list' still show your VM 
which you just did shutdown?

There is still is a VM running which does use this image. Also you 
need to change some other settings, like maybe PERSISTENT (see 
help of oneimage) to Yes.

Depending on your settings during the installation of this "disk", 
you probably want to change DEV_PREFIX to sd (for SCSI disk) with 
the 'oneimage' command. This is a known bug of the saveas command 
in 2.2.1.

But your error says:
cp: cannot stat 
No such file or directory"

When the VM did not shutdown properly (from OpenNeubla's point of 
view), then the image is not copied/moved to the images folder. 
The entry with 'oneimage list' and 'oneimage show <image_id>' is 
there, but the file in you images folder is not yet.
