I've installed charm 2.3.0 and charm-tools 2.2.4 and I'm trying to create a simple charm using command "charm create simple", is that supposed to still work? I am unable to get it to work, I keep getting this error:

ub16dev:~/charms/layers$ charm create simple

INFO: Using default charm template (reactive-python). To select a different template, use the -t option.

INFO: Generating charm for simple in ./simple

INFO: No simple in apt cache; creating an empty charm instead.

Would greatly appreciate any suggestions.
