Unable to launch kali linux LXC

Hi, I am new to LXC and though I would try out few prebuilt LXC images. I am able to run ubuntu lxc containers without problems but am unable to do so for kali linux image.

uname -a
Linux mehenwal 4.18.0-25-generic #26~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 27 07:28:31 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
lxc launch kali kali
Creating kali
Error: not found

Any suggestions what might be wrong? Thankyou in advance


The Kali image comes from the images: repository, therefore to launch a container, you need to

lxc launch images:kali mycontainer

If you do not specify images:, then LXD considers that the image had been saved locally and tries to find it from the locally cached images.

Ahh yes, got it. it works perfectly now. I didn’t include repository to use while launch container. Silly me.

Thankyou so much, have a super productive day.
