Bug Description

When starting the newest Ubuntu Cloud Image for Focal Fossa, many packages are reported to be no longer needed.

This is from a freshly booted and UNMODIFIED Focal UCI :

cat /etc/cloud/build.info
build_name: server
serial: 20200422.1

The image used was the following :

root@systemd-tester:~# md5sum focal-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk-kvm.img
3284b9d54defb0f56875a45ffbd53ace focal-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk-kvm.img

I will keep the instance available if you need it for testing.

Thank you for filing this bug.

I have been able to reproduce and this is specific to the kvm image.

I will investigate further.

Livecd-rootfs version 2.667 was used in producing latest Ubuntu 20.10 Groovy Gorilla KVM image @ http://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/groovy/20200520/

The reported bug is no longer present and bootspeed did not regress.

I will start the process of SRUing the changes required back to Focal and Eoan.
