Bug Description

Rack controller's page doens't have a way to force the import of images if for any reason they failed. MAAS needs to provide a way to force it.

Can you explain the problem? Perhaps we can design MAAS so that it recovers automatically without needing "force" buttons.

The rack controller will retry again after importing fails that is already built in. The issue is more of the UI does not provide what the API allows. This call already exists over the API, we just need to add it to the UI as well.

The download service loops every 5 minutes, but only downloads if the maas.meta file is at least 15 minutes old. Looping more frequently is therefore quite cheap; changing this to 60 seconds, say, would allow the rack to recover from a transient failure faster than anyone is likely to notice and be able to click the "force" button.

I think that would be a better experience for users, and it would mean we could omit the "force" button from the UI and remove the call from the Web API. Fewer moving parts, less work to do, less code to maintain.
