Failed to create container

This is a known issue (#1649649) because proot is broken on that version of the linux kernel and lxc/lxd are not supported on that kernel. See proot bug:

Basic creation of a container on the M10 should just work on shipped images. Is this a custom Xenial image or a supported Ubuntu Touch image?

Larry Price (larryprice) wrote :

Right - my previous comment assumes you are attempting to run the xenial image on the m10. vivid should still be working fine.

That's interesting - we haven't seen container creation failures on vivid before, and we haven't released a new version of libertine on vivid in many months. Maybe there were some changes to the archives over the weekend?

Stephen M. Webb (bregma) wrote :

Are you creating the container using the Terminal App? There is a known bug in the terminal app you may be running in to. Try using ssh (even from the terminal app) to get around confinement.

I'm using phablet-tools with ssh via a usb cable from my ubuntu 16.04 laptop

I'll have a go with the Terminal App tonight but I was under the impression it wouldn't work unless mounted via a laptop/desktop?

Stephen M. Webb (bregma) wrote :

I'd recommend you *don't* use Terminal App for container creation.

The error messages look like a problem in the archives to me. On that hardware the chroot back end is being used which run debootstrap from the archives. The "Couldn't download package" errors sound like the index files at the archives do not match the actual packages somehow. The "Failed to create container" message indicates the debootstrap failed.

I'm suspecting this problems is caused by the Vivid archives getting messed up.

Iain Mellis (iainmellis) wrote :

There won't be much I can do about then will there? Oh well. I'll have to wait until they update things.

Yeah, that output indicates a transient issue with the debootstrap archive and I have seen issues like this from time to time. Nothing we can in Libertine to address this, but could you try again to see if it's working now?

Changed in libertine (Ubuntu):
status: New → Incomplete

Certainly, I'll have a go when I get home from work.
