I would like to try Maesh in my single Node Kubernetes cluster (1.16.1),

When I helm install it, I got this error,

$ helm install --name=maesh --namespace=maesh maesh/maesh

Error: release maesh failed: Deployment.apps "grafana-core" is invalid: [spec.selector: Required value, spec.template.metadata.labels: Invalid value: map[string]string{"app":"grafana", "component":"core"}: `selector` does not match template `labels`]

If I disable monitoring, I got the same issue with Open Tracing.

Any idea how to fix this ? I try to fix the yaml but unsuccessfully

I'm having the same issue, I believe. I'm trying to deploy with tracing disabled:

$ helm install --name=maesh --namespace=maesh --set tracing.deploy=false --set tracing.jaeger.enabled=false maesh/maesh
Error: release maesh failed: Deployment.apps "prometheus-core" is invalid: [spec.selector: Required value, spec.template.metadata.labels: Invalid value: map[string]string{"app":"prometheus", "component":"core"}: `selector` does not match template `labels`]

I think it has something to do with the involved software and versions. I'm using k3s version 0.10.0 (f9888ca3). kubectl version gives

Client Version: version.Info{Major:"1", Minor:"16", GitVersion:"v1.16.2", GitCommit:"c97fe5036ef3df2967d086711e6c0c405941e14b", GitTreeState:"clean", BuildDate:"2019-10-15T19:18:23Z", GoVersion:"go1.12.10", Compiler:"gc", Platform:"linux/amd64"}
Server Version: version.Info{Major:"1", Minor:"16", GitVersion:"v1.16.2-k3s.1", GitCommit:"b8b17ba55f20e590df507fce333dfee13ab438c6", GitTreeState:"clean", BuildDate:"2019-10-16T05:17Z", GoVersion:"go1.13.3", Compiler:"gc", Platform:"linux/amd64"}

And lastly helm version:

Client: &version.Version{SemVer:"v2.15.1", GitCommit:"cf1de4f8ba70eded310918a8af3a96bfe8e7683b", GitTreeState:"clean"}
Server: &version.Version{SemVer:"v2.15.1", GitCommit:"cf1de4f8ba70eded310918a8af3a96bfe8e7683b", GitTreeState:"clean"}

I have tried getting maesh installed on a minikube cluster. I had to use helm in version 2.14.3 to be able to deploy anything but ran into issues with the persistant volumes I wasn't able to fix. See #267

With switching to the K8s API version apps/v1 (53c7323) the spec.selector field apparently became required for deployments. Will prepare a PR to fix this.
