Hi Guys,

I am trying to start minikube in my windows system. But it gives me the below error.

$ minikube start --vm-driver=virtualbox 
minikube v1.8.1 on Darwin 10.14.6 Using the virtualbox driver based on user configuration
Error getting primary cp: could not find master node
minikube is exiting due to an error. If the above message is not useful, open an issue:

How can I solve this issue?

You may receive this error when you update your Minikube installation but Minikube is still referencing the old files inside $HOME/.minikube directory. To avoid this error, simply delete the .minikube directory and start Minikube again. You can use the below given command.

$ minikube delete — all — purge
$ rm -rf .minikube/
$ minikube start --vm-driver=virtualbox

Hope this will help you.
