Bug Description

Ubuntu Kickstart no longer works in performing unattended installs of Ubuntu Server 18.04+ (Bionic) because the networking configuration fails due to the original networking parameters being based on SystemV whereas Ubuntu 18.04+ uses Netplan YAML syntax. Kickstart remains an installable package in the repos for Ubuntu Artful, Bionic, and Cosmic, however it cannot perform the desired automated installs for post-Xenial distros.

Please note: Preseeding is not an option for unattended network installations because network configuration only works for CD-ROM and USB. (Source: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/installation-guide/arm64/apbs04.html#preseed-network)
