What commands did you issue?

The location of logs depends on how the cloud is configured. A typical location would be /var/log/glance, but if you use DevStack, all logs are probably under /opt/stack/logs.

You say everything is ok in /var/log/glance, but if the cirros image is not copied to /var/lib/glance/images, there should be a log message that explains why. Is there a typo in the [glance_store] section in glance-api.conf? Does this directory exist and is it writable? Is there enough space?

I have hade had this problem in Pike when creating images from Horizon (GUI). It worked by using openstack/glance CLI. To get it to work with Horizon, I implemented the remedy described here: (Pike Horizon Image Create Fails).
