This looks to be the same bug as
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1074120

Reproducible by installing Kubuntu (maybe any non-gnome based flavor), installing virt-manager and trying to make a new VM. Looks to be a dependency issue as qemu-kvm is missing. Maybe virt-manager should depend on qemu-kvm (or at least recommend). After installling qemu-kvm, restart and it works fine.

@teodori-serge,

are you trying to create kvm vms? Can you show the output of

dpkg -l | grep qemu

?

Installing qemu-kvm fixes this for me, so the bug here is that it should present a more friendly error message.

Even if you went based on the error presented, storage is highly misleading.

Confirmed, installing qemu-kvm resolves this issue.

I was editing vm details within virt-manager of a running win7_x64 machine. I added 250gb, virtio bus, qcow2, and cache none. I rebooted windows and this error appeared. I already have qemu-kvm installed. OS is Debian 8 amd64.

I hit the same problem with Fedora 24 workstation, the solution was to install qemu-kvm-tools
$sudo dnf install qemu-kvm-tools
