Bug Description

[Impact]
When enabling UCA a hyperlink is printed:

$ sudo add-apt-repository cloud-archive:train-proposed
 Ubuntu Cloud Archive for OpenStack Train [proposed]
 More info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ServerTeam/CloudArchive
Press [ENTER] to continue or Ctrl-c to cancel adding it.

The hyperlink redirects to:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/OpenStack/CloudArchive

so it should just be corrected at the source:

https://git.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/software-properties/tree/softwareproperties/cloudarchive.py#n50

[Test Case]
The "More info:" link should be https://wiki.ubuntu.com/OpenStack/CloudArchive, for example:

root@b1:~# sudo add-apt-repository cloud-archive:queens
 Ubuntu Cloud Archive for OpenStack Queens
 More info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/OpenStack/CloudArchive
Press [ENTER] to continue or Ctrl-c to cancel adding it.

[Regression Potential]
This change is extremely minimal as it only updates a string that points to a wiki URL.

Thanks Peter. I'll get this SRU'd. Marked as Low since it doesn't affect any functionality but I do think it needs fixing as it's just not clean.

Thank you for preparing this SRU.

It's clearly correct, but it's one of those that I'd prefer to see bundled with other updates. Given that the user is correctly redirected (and I think you can configure MoinMoin to do it even more automatically?) I don't think that making every Ubuntu user download this update is justified just for this fix.

Let's see how bug 1829823 goes, and if that goes well, we can accept this into the proposed pockets for staging.

Hello Peter, or anyone else affected,
