At the moment Juju does not support deploying a charm with a custom image
in MAAS. It is required to use the provided Ubuntu images with Juju. It is
possible to modify the preseed of the deploying machine which will allow
you to make some changes to the system before Juju takes over [1]. Again
this is also not recommended with Juju, Juju wants to be running on a clean
Ubuntu image.


Note: This is documentation for MAAS 1.9, but the same applies for 2.0+. I
have filed a bug for the missing documentation after 1.9.
