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

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.
