Bug Description

The ephemeral environment $HOME variable is /

I had a firmware upgrade script using $HOME, expecting it would be /root/, but it was actually /.

no longer affects: maas-images

maas-run-remote-scripts is executed by cloud-init, which is executed by systemd. Your shell normally sets $HOME as well as other environment variables. Since no process is started by a shell $HOME is never defined. We could either set $HOME manually in maas-run-remote-scripts or execute all scripts through bash.
