I am new to kubernetes I setup two nodes using virtualbox node for master and another for worker. I had to restart the master node to extend the size of the virtual machine disk size but after restarting I noticed network interface didn't notice before docker0 and I no longer can connect to the internet

root@kmaster:/home/master# ifconfig -a
docker0: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet  netmask  broadcast
        ether 02:42:c0:68:28:15  txqueuelen 0  (Ethernet)

enp0s3: flags=4098<BROADCAST,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet  netmask  broadcast
        ether 08:00:27:d8:7b:e3  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)

lo: flags=73<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING>  mtu 65536
        inet  netmask
        inet6 ::1  prefixlen 128  scopeid 0x10<host>

        TX packets 115563  bytes 23918431 (23.9 MB)

from /etc/network/interfaces

# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

autp enp0s3
iface enp0s3 inet static

and when I am running I face this error

root@kmaster:/home/master# sudo ip route add default via
Error: Nexthop has invalid gateway.

Note: I run root@kmaster:/home/master# ip route flush dev enp0s3 before running sudo ip route add default via

and when trying to run kubeadm init --apiserver-advertise-address= --pod-network-cidr=

I face this error

Looks like you have multiple issues here. I suspect they also start prior to initializing your cluster, as Kubernetes can't connect to the internet to download what it needs.

  1. destroy the current VM, and create a new one (recommend Bridged networking).
  2. verify the VM has network connectivity.
  3. install docker on the VM.
  4. enable the docker service (looks like you also missed this step) with: sudo systemctl enable docker (or as appropriate for your OS)
  5. verify the vm has network connectivity.
  6. proceed with kubernetes installation and cluster initialization.

I suspect you also don't want your pod-network-cidr to specify the same network as your VMs, or otherwise play with the HostNetwork setting.
