apt-get update 


test>kubectl exec -it pingtest-57cc454bcd-bxpgf bash

root@pingtest-57cc454bcd-bxpgf:/# apt-get update

Appears to be a DNS Related error. Tried fixing via applying and creating a DNS pod.

But it says it already exists.

apiVersion: v1

kind: ConfigMap


name: kube-dns

namespace: kube-system
