I wanted to spin up a test environment locally using the description from this stackoverflow answer: https://stackoverflow.com/a/58607900/4397899

The main.tf looks like

################################################################################
# ENV VARS
################################################################################

# https://www.terraform.io/docs/commands/environment-variables.html

variable "VM_COUNT" {
  default = 3
  type = number
}

variable "VM_USER" {
  default = "developer"
  type = string
}

variable "VM_HOSTNAME" {
  default = "ci-vm"
  type = string
}

variable "VM_IMG_URL" {
  default = "https://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/releases/bionic/release/ubuntu-18.04-server-cloudimg-amd64.img"
  type = string
}

variable "VM_IMG_FORMAT" {
  default = "qcow2"
  type = string
}

variable "VM_CIDR_RANGE" {
  default = "10.10.10.10/24"
  type = string
}

################################################################################
# TERRAFORM CONFIG
################################################################################

terraform {
  required_version = ">= 0.12"
}

The network_config.cfg looks like this

version: 2
ethernets:
  ens3:
     dhcp4: true

Steps to Reproduce Issue

Run

terraform init
terraform apply

Then I get the error message:

Error: Error creating libvirt network: virError(Code=38, Domain=0, Message='error creating bridge interface ci-vm_network-br: Numerical result out of range')

I guess the issue is here:

default = "10.10.10.10/24"

you have defined a network address and not a subnet. Try and change the IP address to a subnet address it should work.
