Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

helm install -> "INSTALLATION FAILED: Kubernetes cluster unreachable"

Good afternoon everyone

I started the LFS244 course today and unfortunately I am stuck on Lab 3.3.
I did the installation of microk8s and Helm on a new Ubuntu v22.04 VM and that all worked fine.
However, as soon as I try to install a chart using Helm, it cannot reach the cluster and responds with the error:
helm install demo myapp
Error: INSTALLATION FAILED: Kubernetes cluster unreachable: GET "": Gateway Timeout

However, the Kubernetes cluster is running and I can connect to it with telnet:
microk8s status
microk8s is running

telnet 16443
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.

Have you ever had this problem? What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for the support and best regards
