retrofit-image action fails if retrofit-series is focal

Bug Description

the retrofit-series option fails if the retrofit series is focal. This unit log has several attempts to perform the action with the retrofit-series option set to focal, and then a successful one with it set to bionic:

This is the start of the error log: virt-dib: error: libguestfs error: sh: Map install for amphora-agent

The error log finishes unhelpfully, it appears it may be getting truncated:
> Selecting previously unselected package python3-taskflow.
> Preparing to unpack ..

If reporting bugs, run virt-dib with debugging enabled and include the
complete output:

sub'd to field high - we have a workaround in using bionic, but focal should work too.

Thank you for the bug and thank you for providing logs with debug output.

Focal is supported and we are validating and using focal Amphorae in the Octavia charm gate.

Prompted by your bug report I reran the test just now and I see the same issue here, so I guess there is a change in-distro that offends the process in some way, we'll take a look.

Running the `octavia-diskimage-retrofit` tool manually on the unit using the QCOW2 image downloaded from glance reveals the following:

The script in the snap does already grow the root filesystem to accommodate for upgraded packages:

We may need to increase the headroom a bit.

I guess it is worth noting that a workaround would be to configure glance-simplestreams-sync to download the daily image stream as opposed to the released one. That will have more of the updates included in the source image and avoid the problem of overrunning the image disk space in the retrofit process.

Setting to invalid for charm as this was an issue with the snap.
