Bug Description

[Impact]

Nova-agent is provided by Rackspace for installation within guests that run on Rackspace Cloud. It is a collection of tools and daemons, packaged as rax-nova-agent, that ensure that the Ubuntu images published to Rackspace run properly on their platform.

Cloud platforms evolve at a rate that can't be handled in six-month increments, and they will often develop features that they would like to be available to customers who don't want to upgrade from earlier Ubuntu releases. As such, updating rax-nova-agent to more recent upstream releases is required within all Ubuntu releases, so they continue to function properly in their environment.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/rax-nova-agent-Updates for more details.

[Test Case]

* Ensure that upgrading from the previous version works in Rackspace's cloud including rebooting the instance
* Ensure that images created with the updated rax-nova-agent boot and operate properly in Rackspace's cloud including rebooting the instance.
* Additional tests may be performed by the CPC team, please contact them before marking the package verified.

[Regression Potential]

Latest changes included changing system initialization and networking setup which may break instance booting and setting up network connectivity potentially making the instance unreachable. The testing aims at revealing problems in those areas if there are regressions.

---------------
rax-nova-agent (2.1.18-0ubuntu1) disco; urgency=medium

  * New upstream version 2.1.18 (LP: #1804445)
    - Update _setup_hostname to write to /etc/hostname file when failing
      on hostnamectl. Move function to base class since function is the
      same for all operating systems
    - Update tests to ensure changes to _setup_hostname are covered
  * Clean up after rax-openstack-guest-agents in postinst
  * Refresh patches

The postinst check for less than 2.1.15-0ubuntu1~16.04.0~ made me a bit confused in the cosmic upload, but I have confirmed with the uploader that it's how it's supposed to be.
