I cant get MaaS to download the boot images

when i run

maas root node-groups import-boot-images

all I get is

Import of boot images started on all cluster controllers

and I don't get any images, same goes for the web ui.

Any ideas?

The command given on the MAAS documentation did not work out for me as well, so I ran:

sudo maas-import-pxe-files

Also run an update and reboot your machine afterwards, MAAS should then find the imported boot images.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
