I have followed the instructions here:


After running these commands:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:maas-maintainers/stable
sudo apt-get install maas-image-builder

I got following error:

E: Unable to locate package maas-image-builder

Any help? Much appreciated!

  • Before installing run sudo apt-get update, maybe help you. – d a i s y Mar 12 '16 at 6:10
  • Yes, this was already done. Up to date, still same issue. – Matthew Garrett Mar 13 '16 at 7:20

Rough steps I followed to get it working. Note it doesn't appear that the image builder is in the main areas or at least I had issues with that. Some of these steps MAY not be necessary.

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

sudo apt-get bzr
sudo apt-get -y install make python-virtualenv
bzr -Ossl.cert_reqs=none branch lp:maas-image-builder

cd maas-image-builder
make install-dependencies
sudo ./bin/maas-image-builder -o centos7-amd64-root-tgz centos
sudo ./bin/maas-image-builder -o centos6-amd64-root-tgz centos --edition 6
