How do I get Kubernetes to work when I get an error the server could not find the requested resource?

HOW TO -️ October 18, 2021

I cannot create a kubernetes pod. I just deployed Kubernetes to Ubuntu 16.04.

I have this as a.yml:

ERROR Rendering Code Block

I run this: kubectl create -f a.yml

I get this:

Error from server (NotFound): the server could not find the requested resource

I expected the above command to create a pod.

I ran this: kubectl cluster-info dump

I got this:

ERROR Rendering Code Block

What am I doing wrong?

Update 12/26/17

The command kubectl get ns produces

the server doesn't have a resource type "namespaces"

$ kubectl version

Update 1/15/18 How do I get some namespaces to be returned?


What happens if kubectl get ns is run? What version of Kubernetes are you using? Images: null and you're asking for an image named 'nginx', that doesn't looks like a registry image name, as such I guess k8s have no idea what to do
