istioctl install --set profile=default -y

Also set istio to automatically inject Envoy sidecar proxies when deploying applications and services to default namespace.

kubectl label namespace default istio-injection=enabled

Troubleshoot

Determine if Kubernetes cluster is running in an environment that supports external load balancer.

kubectl get svc istio-ingressgateway -n istio-system

Check if there are any problems presented in analyze.

istioctl analyze

Also, check the endpoint if its empty or returning any headers and data.

curl -H curl -s -I -HHost:keycloak.7f000101.nip.io http://127.0.0.1
