mysql-shell: cannot create a new cluster in ubuntu multipass vm

In an attempt to create a mysql innodb cluster using mysql-shell, I have done the following:

set up an ubuntu multipass instance (ubuntu vm) to serve as an isolated server
installed mysql server (version 8.0.30) on the multipass instance
on the host I have installed mysql-shell

I have successfully run the following from the mysql-shell:

I have mapped the ip address to 'mysql-pri' in the /etc/hosts file. The same name is used for the multipass instance.

Now when I run cdCluster = dba.createCluster("cd-cluster");, I get the output below:

MySQL ssl JS > cdCluster = dba.createCluster("cd-cluster");
A new InnoDB Cluster will be created on instance 'mysql-pri:3306'.

Validating instance configuration at

This instance reports its own address as mysql-pri:3306

Instance configuration is suitable.
NOTE: Group Replication will communicate with other members using 'mysql-pri:3306'. Use the localAddress option to override.

Creating InnoDB Cluster 'cd-cluster' on 'mysql-pri:3306'...

What is the correction for this to allow creation of new cluster?
