  • Hi @fjgarcia,

    You may be able to run helm repo add stable https://charts.helm.sh/stable --force-update to fix your issue.

    Ran into the same issue. Executing a 'helm repo update' did not change anything.

    [[email protected]]$ helm3 repo add stable https://charts.helm.sh/stable
    "stable" has been added to your repositories
    [[email protected]]$ helm3 repo list

    Then updated and searched again:

    [[email protected]]$ helm3 repo update 
    Hang tight while we grab the latest from your chart repositories...
    ...Successfully got an update from the "stable" chart repository

    The rest of the lab gives some clues on what's happening, some of the debug output from the helm install indicates that this chart is now maintained elsewhere:

    <--omitted-->
    NOTES:
    This Helm chart is deprecated
    
    Given the `stable` deprecation timeline (https://github.com/helm/charts#deprecation-timeline), the Bitnami maintained Helm chart is now located at bitnami/charts (https://github.com/bitnami/charts/).
    
    The Bitnami repository is already included in the Hubs and we will continue providing the same cadence of updates, support, etc that we've been keeping here these years. Installation instructions are very similar, just adding the _bitnami_ repo and using it during the installation (`bitnami/<chart>` instead of `stable/<chart>`)
    
    $ helm repo add bitnami https://charts.bitnami.com/bitnami
    $ helm install my-release bitnami/<chart>           # Helm 3
    $ helm install --name my-release bitnami/<chart>    # Helm 2

    Hello,

    Change is constant and dynamic. I will revisit where the charts are coming from and update the lab.

    While this may seem like an issue - this is what it is to work with a dynamic open source cloud environment. Our labs are not canned "demos" that are sterile and have no relevance to real production. Instead we download and use the tools live just as you would encounter in production. As a result these sorts of things are to be expected.

    Regards,

  • @serewicz , agreed this is just the nature of the beast. I imagine it's an arduous task to keep the labs up to date with how fast things change and the large number of external dependencies. I was just tossing a comment in for folks to hopefully find a solution to this issue in the meantime. Thanks for all of your hard work!

    -Futon
