Requested operation is not valid: network 'external' is not active

Hello, forgive my ignorance as I’m still somewhat new to linux. But I’m trying to install Whonix 15 on KVM. I followed all the instructions here on in docs, but when I try to start the gateway, it says “Requested operation is not valid: network ‘external’ is not active”. I’m not sure if it’s in KVM itself or if I set something up wrong. Please help. Any ideas? Thank you.

We’ve recently changed the Whonix network names to be more clear. Please remove the old ones ‘internal’ and ‘external’ and follow this post:
