Bug Description

Ubuntu Focal currently has MAAS 2.6.0.

This is a Feature Freeze Exception request for MAAS to allow the package to move to a snap transition. Learning from, and copying code from the LXD snap transition, along with support in `do-release-upgrade` the MAAS team plans to release future MAAS versions as a snap.

Existing users will have their < 20.04 .deb upgraded to a snap installation, using the correct track and architecture for the expected release.

The binary packages from this package will be consolidated down to a single one which will contain the deb to snap transition logic.

Data migration

Existing data will be untouched, and the snap configured to use whatever db is currently in use.


Tests will be performed in several scenarios that cover the risks, notably:

- snapd package not installed
- airgapped environments which e.g. cannot reach the Snap Store
- i386 architecture transition

For more information on the QA process MAAS follows, please see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MAASUpdates .

WRT i386, as focal won't support the arch anymore, no maas update will be available for i386 users.
