Brand new micok8s install, istio addon was initially enabled (version 1.51). But I disabled it afterward, because I would like to install the latest version 1.6.7 from the binary. https://istio.io/latest/docs/setup/getting-started/#download

$ ./istioctl install --set profile=demo

Surprisingly, microk8s status now shows istio as enabled.

QUESTION: what was the resource that istio was waiting for? Where can I get more info about the installation failure? More importantly, is there a solution to fix this resource issue? So that I can attempt to re-install istio again.

Microk8s checks for a running pod named pod/istio and determined whether istio is enabled or not.
You will need dns to be enabled in the cluster.
Regarding the status reported by istioctl, you may need to check the pods created by istio.
