Ubuntu 22.04 and Kubernetes recently Broke Compatibility with Each Other (and how to work around it)

Here’s another blog post today, that I’m creating for the same reason as the previous one. It took me a bit longer than I’d like to admit to figure this out, and if anyone else out there is wondering why their automated Kubernetes builds on Ubuntu 22.04 started failing on them suddenly for no apparent reason. Specifically, your Kubernetes cluster builds started failing on December 9th. (You literally can’t make this stuff up). So, after troubleshooting for countless hours I finally figured it out.

Continue reading and I’ll let you know what the issue is, and how to fix it. I’ll also sneak in a quantum science reference and it’s going to be a good time.

LibreOffice, an office suite from the Document Foundation contains all the features you’d expect in an office suite, including (but not limited to) the ability to create text, spreadsheet, and presentation documents.
