The unfortunate issue is that manual and local both target arbitrary
environments, which means they are the least repeatable (local firewall,
pre-existing software interference). Getting machine 0 to not special in
local provider will help somewhat as would firewall checks, and foreground
lxc/lxd image download. In the meantime directing new users to a cloud
provider seems best whenever possible.
Partly it also depends on their goal, if their intent is to get to an
openstack setup, then becoming familiar with maas is also a useful
endeavour for which a virtualbox setup is useful.
