K8s Install Error: Error: unknown flag: –experimental-upload-certs

When installing the k8sV1.16 version today, the execution suddenly found that the command was wrong. It was possible to install V1.15 before, which may be the reason for the version upgrade.

Solution:

unknown flag: –experimental-upload-certs, replace –experimental-upload-certs with –upload-certs

[[email protected] opt]# kubeadm init --config=kubeadm-config.yaml --experimental-upload-certs | tee kubeadm-init.log
Error: unknown flag: --experimental-upload-certs
Usage:
  kubeadm init [flags]
  kubeadm init [command]

Available Commands:
  phase       Use this command to invoke single phase of the init workflow

Flags:
      --apiserver-advertise-address string   The IP address the API Server will advertise it's listening on. If not set the default network interface will be used.
      --apiserver-bind-port int32            Port for the API Server to bind to. (default 6443)
      --apiserver-cert-extra-sans strings    Optional extra Subject Alternative Names (SANs) to use for the API Server serving certificate. Can be both IP addresses and DNS names.
      --cert-dir string                      The path where to save and store the certificates. (default "/etc/kubernetes/pki")
      --certificate-key string               Key used to encrypt the control-plane certificates in the kubeadm-certs Secret.
      --config string                        Path to a kubeadm configuration file.
      --control-plane-endpoint string        Specify a stable IP address or DNS name for the control plane.
      --cri-socket string                    Path to the CRI socket to connect. If empty kubeadm will try to auto-detect this value; use this option only if you have more than one CRI installed or if you have non-standard CRI socket.
      --dry-run                              Don't apply any changes; just output what would be done.
  -k, --experimental-kustomize string        The path where kustomize patches for static pod manifests are stored.
      --feature-gates string                 A set of key=value pairs that describe feature gates for various features. Options are:
                                             IPv6DualStack=true|false (ALPHA - default=false)
  -h, --help                                 help for init
      --ignore-preflight-errors strings      A list of checks whose errors will be shown as warnings. Example: 'IsPrivilegedUser,Swap'. Value 'all' ignores errors from all checks.
      --image-repository string              Choose a container registry to pull control plane images from (default "k8s.gcr.io")
      --kubernetes-version string            Choose a specific Kubernetes version for the control plane. (default "stable-1")
      --node-name string                     Specify the node name.
      --pod-network-cidr string              Specify range of IP addresses for the pod network. If set, the control plane will automatically allocate CIDRs for every node.
      --service-cidr string                  Use alternative range of IP address for service VIPs. (default "10.96.0.0/12")
      --service-dns-domain string            Use alternative domain for services, e.g. "myorg.internal". (default "cluster.local")
      --skip-certificate-key-print           Don't print the key used to encrypt the control-plane certificates.
      --skip-phases strings                  List of phases to be skipped
      --skip-token-print                     Skip printing of the default bootstrap token generated by 'kubeadm init'.
      --token string                         The token to use for establishing bidirectional trust between nodes and control-plane nodes. The format is [a-z0-9]{6}\.[a-z0-9]{16} - e.g. abcdef.0123456789abcdef
      --token-ttl duration                   The duration before the token is automatically deleted (e.g. 1s, 2m, 3h). If set to '0', the token will never expire (default 24h0m0s)
      --upload-certs                         Upload control-plane certificates to the kubeadm-certs Secret.

Global Flags:
      --add-dir-header           If true, adds the file directory to the header
      --log-file string          If non-empty, use this log file
      --log-file-max-size uint   Defines the maximum size a log file can grow to. Unit is megabytes. If the value is 0, the maximum file size is unlimited. (default 1800)
      --rootfs string            [EXPERIMENTAL] The path to the 'real' host root filesystem.
