Bug Description

There's a small window where s-i can move files to /cache/recovery but the reboot fails. Normally, after reboot applies an update, recovery will clean up this directory, but if the reboot fails, it won't.

After IRC discussion, s-i should clean up /cache/recovery before it pushes a new set of files. According to stgraber, we can just delete everything except 'log' and 'last_log'.

As an added bonus, we'll download directly to /cache/recovery so we don't need /var/cache/system-image.

We must write ubuntu_command as the last thing we do (which we do anyway).
