The current compute logs seem to point at this bug:

The bug says you restart libvirt and the problem goes away. Seems like
a package issue, maybe? I am not sure.

I notice some 404s for flavors. You need to create your own flavors
before you can boot an instance. Not sure if thats covered in the
install docs.

For me I found the order unclear in the currently proposed docs, so I
revised them so the cells and placement logic is more integrated into
the existing steps in the guide.
