Stumbled over a pointer to running microk8s on a cluster of raspberry pi systems and it looked interesting – probably about time I got a bit of hands-on experience with kubernetes. No handy rpi system at the moment so I installed it on the ubuntu box and started working my way through very basic “Getting started” info at https://microk8s.io/docs.

Can’t seem to get it to work. It installs, but the basic first set of tasks fails at:

ajft@fafnir  ~  microk8s kubectl create deployment
Error: required flag(s) "image" not set


Searching around implies that it has something to do with not working if you have zfs, but there’s a workaround, but then it says that it was fixed almost a year ago. I make the changes suggested in the workaround, still won’t work. More web searches, nothing. Life’s too short, uninstalling.
