I’m executing everything as root.

as a normal user (not root) you can only use the download template.
lxc-create -n foo -t download -d ubuntu -a amd64 -r trusty
, download templates downloads tarball of rootfs and creates the container, unlike other template, which construct the container using debootstrap/yum etc. That process involves device creation and other operations which is not possible as normal user. Stephane Graber has a nice post on it: https://www.stgraber.org/2014/01/17/lxc-1-0-unprivileged-containers/

I had apt-get installed lxc on my Ubuntu 14.04 and everything was good.

Then I installed the latest snapshot from https://github.com/lxc/lxc and
now most of the commands just say this:

Insufficent privileges to control…

Lxc-create has other problems:

root at se:~/lxc-create -n cn_03 -t ubuntu
lxc_container: Bad address - failed to execute template /usr/share/lxc/templates/lxc-ubuntu
lxc_container: container creation template for cn_03 failed
lxc_container: Error creating container cn_03

What am I doing wrong?
