Error during Lab 2.2. Deploy a New Cluster

When attempting to deploy the new cluster to the master, I get the below error. Seems the code is no longer good for creating a new cluster and needs to be updated?

    My temp workaround for this was to comment out installing podman and buildah (Line 123)

    Hi @guarddog,

    The podman installation steps have changed recently. I was able to mix steps from podman's official installation instructions, with several blog posts, to a sequence of steps that may help to get it installed in preparation for Lab 3, where podman is used to build a container image, run the container, and also interact with a registry.

    To install podman, as a non-root user execute the following sequence:

    . /etc/os-release

    echo "deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/kubic:/libcontainers:/stable/xUbuntu_${VERSION_ID}/ /" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/devel:kubic:libcontainers:stable.list

    curl -L "https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/kubic:/libcontainers:/stable/xUbuntu_${VERSION_ID}/Release.key" | sudo apt-key add -

    sudo apt update

    sudo apt upgrade -y

    sudo apt install -y gnupg2

    sudo apt install -y podman

    sudo apt install -y podman --fix-missing

    If the installation errors persist, re-run the following sequence:

    sudo apt install -y gnupg2

    sudo apt install -y podman

    sudo apt install -y podman --fix-missing

    sudo apt install -y gnupg2

    sudo apt install -y podman --fix-missing

    Regards,

  • Hi @chrispokorni ,

    I faced the same issue and followed all your steps. Still, I'm facing the issue. I have attached the cp.out. Could you please advise? Thanks

    Hi @mahmoud.mikaeili,

    Please be more specific and provide some descriptive details about the "same issue" you are trying to report. The attached output file does not show any of the errors reported earlier...

  • Hi @chrispokorni ,

    I am running the lab on AWS. I followed the instructions and faced a Fatal Error "kublet version is higher than the control plane." You can find a screenshot here.

    Also, the complete cp. out log is enclosed. Please let me know how to proceed. Thanks.

    Hi @mahmoud.mikaeili,

    If you play close attention to the error, it tells you that the kubelet version is 1.24.2, while the control plane version is 1.23.1.

    Is there any reason for the version mismatch? The lab guide is calling for Kubernetes version 1.23.1 - for all three components: kubeadm, kubelet, and kubectl. The installation scripts and helper files from the SOLUTIONS tarball are calling for Kubernetes version 1.23.1.

    Please follow the lab guide and install the correct version.

    Regards,
    -Chris
