Deployed the cluster on vsphere using juju but no pods get created in the cluster

Cluster information:

Kubernetes version: 1.20.7
Cloud being used: bare-metal (vmware)
Installation method: charmed-kubernetes (juju)
Host OS: ubuntu focal
CNI and version: flannel v0.11.0
CRI and version: containerd 1.3.3-0ubuntu2.3

I’ve tried deploying several variants of the charm bundle charmed-kubernetes and all gave pretty much the same results: everything deploys. juju status looks good, i can interact with k8s using kubectl but there are no pods. No system pods either for that matter. Tried to create a deployment but it stays in its initial state, no logs letting my know the system tried to create a pod or anything.

I’d like some help to figure out what piece of the puzzle i’m missing. Documentations tells me this should work and orchestration created all vms properly, by all means this should work but no pods are created.

Any help would be appreciated!
