Packages virtinst and virt-manager cannot be installed via Sparky Linux 2024.05 repositories. What makes in turn Web Cockpit Console pretty much useless at least via my experience with Sparky Linux 2024.05. It happened to me the first time in history of working with Sparky LInux Rolling releases. I would be glad to be wrong with mentioned above testing results.

UPDATE as of 05/14/2024 Issue seems to be fixed . Versions virt-manager and virtinst are shown below
