MAAS Bootstrap

About an hour ago I managed to get ssh going to it, for some reason I
couldn't get the rsa key to work initially, came back after some
frustration and a reboot for it to start working.  Currently battling it
now, unfortunately I can't just drop the problematic repo's as one of them
is the 'main' one, doing so takes out a lot of essential packages.  All I
can find online is 4-5 unanswered questions from people getting the same
error from the repo when going from ubuntu 13.10 to 14.04.

I guess I need to have another go at forcing it to an older version of
Ubuntu for now.
