LFD259: fluentd image not pulled

So I got to step 2.4 and the issue I am running into is that k8s is not pulling the fluentd image. The yaml is below followed by the error:

This is the relevant portion of the describe command showing the errors:

    I found the answer at the end of this question:: LAB 2.4 Adding fluentd to basic.yaml failing to start. The image name has changed to fluentd.

  • just had the same thing. used

    image: fluentd

    and worked ok
