  snapd.boot-ok.service hangs eternally on cloud image upgrades

Status in cloud-init package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in snapd package in Ubuntu:
Status in cloud-init source package in Xenial:
  Fix Released
Status in snapd source package in Xenial:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  ==== Begin SRU Template [cloud-init] ====
  One of cloud-init's features is to upgrade the system during first boot so 
that it is fully up to date when the user code starts running.

  [Test Case]
  launch an old instance of 16.04 that will need an update to snapd with
  user-data that indicates a package upgrade should be done.

  $ lxc image show ubuntu:74a491804877
  autoupdate: false
    aliases: 16.04,default,lts,x,xenial
    architecture: amd64
    description: ubuntu 16.04 LTS amd64 (release) (20160830)
    label: release
    os: ubuntu
    release: xenial
    serial: "20160830"
    version: "16.04"
  public: true

  $ printf "#%s\n%s\n" cloud-config "packages: [snapd]" > user-data

  $ lxc launch ubuntu:74a491804877 xrecreate "--config=user.user-data=$(cat 
  $ lxc exec xrecreate -- tail -f /var/log/cloud-init-output.log

  # you will see the output log hang at:
  # Setting up snapd (2.14.2~16.04) ...

  ## Now get new container and patch in cloud-init
  $ lxc launch ubuntu:74a491804877 xpatched
  # let it boot, with no user-data saying to update.
  $ sleep 10

  # update the container to new cloud-init, then clean it to make
  # it look like first boot again.
  $ lxc file push - xpatched/etc/cloud/cloud.cfg.d/update.cfg < user-data
  $ lxc exec xpatched -- sh -c '
      echo deb xenial-proposed main > "$p" &&
      apt-get update -q && apt-get -qy install cloud-init'
  $ lxc exec xpatched -- sh -c '
      cd /var/lib/cloud && for d in *; do [ "$d" = "seed" ] || rm -Rf "$d"; done
      rm -Rf /var/log/cloud-init*'

  $ lxc exec xpatched reboot
  $ lxc exec xpatched -- tail -f /var/log/cloud-init-output.log

  # snapd installed and a 'Cloud-init finished' message.

  [Regression Potential] 
  The change to running package installation later in boot will likely affect 
some things.  However, previously a larger set of things were unreliable.  This 
will make things over all more reliable.
  ==== End SRU Template [cloud-init] ====

  I reproducibly run into an eternal hang when deploying services with
  Juju, when it prepares a new xenial testbed. The current xenial cloud
  image does not have the latest snapd, so snapd gets dist-upgraded:

  Preparing to unpack .../snapd_2.14.2~16.04_amd64.deb ...
  Warning: Stopping snapd.service, but it can still be activated by:
  Unpacking snapd (2.14.2~16.04) over (2.13) ...
  Setting up snapd (2.14.2~16.04) ...
  [...] hangs

  The postinst tries to start snapd.boot-ok.service on upgrade:

             |                 `-sh(354)---tee(355)

  root       922  0.0  0.0  25316  1412 pts/0    S+   06:09   0:00
  /bin/systemctl start snapd.boot-ok.service

  This hangs eternally because:

   - cloud-init's dist-upgrade runs *during* the boot process, so that
  the system is not fully booted yet when this happens (see bug
  1576692); thus is *not* yet active

   - snapd.boot-ok.service is

   - "systemctl start" is synchronous by default, i. e. it waits until
  the service is started unless you use --no-block.

  Thus snapd.postinst waits on snapd.boot-ok.service waits on multi- waits on cloud-init to finish waits on snapd.postinst to

  I think conceptually you shouldn't start snapd.boot-ok.service in the
  postinst; if the system is already booted (manual dist-upgrade) it
  should already be running, and if it does get upgraded during boot
  (with cloud-init) then you shouldn't pretend that booting is already
  finished. So I suggest to use dh_installinit with --no-scripts for
