Call for testing: ubiquity-based desktop image respins

Hi Lukasz,

I'm 100% certain Ubuntu Studio should also be affected as we weren't using 
Calamares until 20.10.

Also, for some reason, the test cases for 20.04.2 weren't lining up with that 
and had taken-on the Calamares workflow, which would be in error.

Sorry if this adds more work, but this is definitely an oversight. :)
