Bug Description

Trying to install a machine with mlaltest trunk, I came itno an issue where:

When deploying, the ephemeral environment tries to access the archive, however, it does it without going to the proxy first, and tries to do it directly.

However, when curtin takes over and installs packages, these are installed using the proxy.

This means that either
1. proxy is not set for the pehemeral environment
2. proxy is set only after curtin takes over

Or some other reason.

This is breaking the MAAS CI at the moment as well. The CI does all network communication through the proxy. Here is the installation log:

MAAS is sending the proxy but curtin is only using it by placing it into the target system. It also needs to set it up in the ephemeral so that any packages it needs to download will use the proxy as well.

Looks to be that MAAS is not setting the apt_proxy with cloud-init. That will make sure that both the installed system and the ephemeral will use the proxy.
