I’m having the same problem with the Digital Ocean managed Kubernates.

Ticket ID #03026630

I know that “me too!” posts are usually unhelpful, but this is also happening with me on my managed cluster. Either I get a timeout or a connection refused and it’s driving me mad.


Are you using the Managed Kubernetes service or do you have your own Kubernetes cluster?

I think that either your master node is down and you can’t connect to the API server, or port 443 is closed on your unmanaged cluster.


Hi there!

If this is a managed cluster please contact support so that we can triage your cluster further.

If this is not managed, I would ensure your master services are online and your master has the appropriate resources allocated to it.
