I am trying to set up alpine Linux Guest OS using the below command

#virt-install --name=mfecdrupalalphine
--file-size=100 --nonsparse --vcpus=2 --ram=6096 --network=bridge:br0
--os-type=linux --os-variant=alpinelinux3.8 --graphics none

Starting install...
Retrieving file .treeinfo...

                              |    0 B  00:00:00

                              |    0 B  00:00:00
ERROR    Could not find an installable distribution at
The URL could not be accessed, maybe you mistyped?

The location must be the root directory of an install tree.
See virt-install man page for various distro examples.
Domain installation does not appear to have been successful.
If it was, you can restart your domain by running:
  virsh --connect qemu:///system start mfecdrupalalphine
otherwise, please restart your installation.

The iso file do exist as per the below details
ls -l
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 127926272 Feb 12 17:49

Any clue? I look forward to hearing from you and thanks in advance.

Best Regards,
