Trouble with Ubuntu Core container

I’m trying to run Ubuntu Core in a LXD container, but I’m having a bit of trouble. I’m following this tutorial: I’ve pretty much followed the steps exactly. Everything seems to work fine until after 'exec’ing into the container. After about a minute the container will reboot twice and then the third time the container will not start. I’m pretty much a noob when it comes to LXD, so I’m not sure where to begin troubleshooting this.

I’m running 19.10, and I’ve installed LXD as a snap.

Update: After a lot of trial and error, I was able to figure out that this problem only happens after the pc-kernel snap updates. If I abort the update of the kernel snap everything seems to continue working. I was even able to update the core snap without issue. I tried switching the kernel snap to different channels but the failure was the same. After updating it can’t reboot anymore.

I’m not sure if there are any hints in the container logs?

I also found this denial in the logs:

After searching around some more I found this github issue which describes the exact some problem I’m running into:
However, it’s over two years old, so I’m not sure if it’s still relevant.
