Call for testing: ubiquity-based desktop image respins

Hello everyone,

As some of you know, shortly after release of 20.04.2 a regression in
the ubiquity installer was discovered [1], leading to certain systems
failing to install the Linux kernel (when the connected to the
internet during the installation), resulting in unbootable systems.
The issue was found to be in the OEM-archive handling.

We think we have fixed the issue and, since this is a rather serious
issue, decided to re-spin all the affected ubiquity-based desktop
flavors. The images are now available on the ISO tracker's

We'd appreciate the usual help with testing of the images.

As we have not anticipated a re-spin and the focal-updates gates were
open for a day, there are a few additional changes besides the new
ubiquity package, so please keep that in mind. The manifest diffs
(showing which packages have been upgraded between .2 and .2.0) are
available here:

 * Ubuntu:
 * Kubuntu:
 * Ubuntu Kylin:
 * Ubuntu Mate:
 * Xubuntu:

Thank you!
