    the virtinst package seems to have some problems. I don’t think that it’s part of the ubuntu repos anymore. Here are the details:

    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    virt-manager : Depends: python-gi-cairo but it is not installable
    Depends: gir1.2-libvirt-glib-1.0 but it is not installable
    Depends: gir1.2-gtk-vnc-2.0 but it is not installable
    Depends: gir1.2-libosinfo-1.0 but it is not installable
    Depends: virtinst (>= 1:1.5.1-0ubuntu1.1) but it is not going to be installed

    Recommends: gir1.2-spiceclientgtk-3.0 but it is not installable

    Hi Sk,

    Thanks for this great tutorial.

    Everything works fine, except the fact that I’m not able to connect via ssh to the virtual machine I created.

    The error message that shows up is: No route to host

    Probably it is because the network card should be set to bridged network, is it so?


  5. sk says:

    Yes. Configure bridged network to allow the virtual interfaces to connect to the outside network through the physical interface. Here is a good resource for your reference.

    excellent tutorial

    Thanks from me too, very helpful!

    When bridging I had to disable some default enabled packet inspection (20.04 ubuntu) to get to full 100 Mbyte speed in my gig ethernet (otherwise the guest was limited to ~ 30 Mbyte/sec)
