• The only way to install MicroK8S on Linux is via a snap. (Possibly inside a multipass VM.):

    sudo apt install snapd -y
    sudo snap install microk8s --classic --channel=1.17/stable
  • Add your user to the group to get auth to admin microk8s:

    sudo usermod -a -G microk8s $USER

    Since group changes only take effect on login, either logout and back in now, or you can get the same effect in a terminal with:

    su - $USER
  • Wait for the install to finally complete - it continues in the background after “snap install” completes, apparently:

    microk8s.status --wait-ready
