Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Public Cloud 15

   An update that has 7 recommended fixes can now be installed.


   This update for cloud-init provides the following fixes:

   - Fix a decoding error that could cause persisting the metadata to fail.
   - Fix a problem that could cause static network to be configured with
     BOOTPROTO=none. (bsc#1114160)
   - Update to version 18.4, including the following fixes (bsc#1087331,
     bsc#1097388, bsc#1111427, bsc#1095627):
     * Avoid Python 3 dependency when building for distros with Python 2
     * Add dhcp-client as requirement as cloud-init uses dhclient to setup a
       temporary network for metadata retrieval.
     * Use ds._crawled_metadata instance attribute if set when writing
     * ec2: Update crawled metadata and add standardized keys.
     * lxd: Adjust to snap installed lxd.

       used from network.
     * user-data: Use jinja template to render instance-data.json in
     * config: Disable ssh access to a configured user account.
     * sysconfig: Refactor sysconfig to accept distro specific templates
     * hyperv_reporting_handler: Simplify threaded publisher.
     * VMWare: Fix a network config bug in vm with static IPv4 and no gateway.
     * logging: Add logging config type hyperv for reporting via Azure KVP
     * Add datasource Oracle Compute Infrastructure (OCI).
     * azure: Allow azure to generate network configuration from IMDS per
     * Scaleway: Add network configuration to the DataSource.
     * netplan: Correctly render macaddress on a bonds and bridges when

     * Use typeset or local in profile.d scripts.
     * OpenNebula: Fix null gateway6.
     * tools: add '--debug' to tools/
     * update_metadata: A datasource can support network re-config every boot.
     * Retry on failed import of gpg receive keys.
     * tools: Fix run-container when neither source or binary package
   - Changes from 18.3:
     * Explicitly prevent `sudo` access for user module.
     * lxd: Delete default network and detach device if lxd-init created them.
     * openstack: Avoid unneeded metadata probe on non-openstack platforms.
     * stages: Fix tracebacks if a module stage is undefined or empty.
     * Be safer on string/bytes when writing multipart user-data to disk.
     * Fix get_proc_env for pids that have non-utf8 content in environment.
     * netplan: Fix mtu if provided by network config for all rendered types.
     * subp: Support combine_capture argument.
     * util: Add get_linux_distro function to replace platform.dist
     * Do not use the systemd_prefix macro, not available in this environment.
     * openstack: Allow discovery in init-local using dhclient in a sandbox.
     * yaml_load/schema: Add invalid line and column nums to error message.
     * Azure: Ignore NTFS mount errors when checking ephemeral drive.
     * cc_mounts: Do not add devices to fstab that are already present.

   - The distribution indicator is set to SUSE during template expansion. Do
     not replace anything set to Ubuntu.
   - Do not run cloud-init after network-online, this breaks functionality in
     cloud-init. Certain parts of the code running in this phase expect to
     run before the network is
   - Root should not be enabled by default. Image builders/users that want
     root access by default should provide an appropriate configuration file
     during image build or image setup.
   - Set distribution default to OpenSUSE/SLES. (bsc#1099340)
   - Run metadata detection after network-online. (bsc#1097388)
