That's Ansible's way of saying "the module referenced in this task doesn't
exist".  In this case it can't find the ceph_volume module, which is packaged
with the ceph-ansible distribution.  It should find it if you're running Ansible
from the /root/ceph-ansible directory.

Try running "ansible --version" and check what's shown for "config file" and
"configured module search path".  You should have /root/ceph-ansible/library
on the module search path.
