The Ubuntu Project and Canonical build and publish these images in
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is available, and you can find and launch it using
e.g. the Azure CLI.
However, the gallery is maintained by Microsoft. The change to include
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is in the process of rolling out across all the
regions. So Ubuntu 18.04 LTS should be available in the gallery soon.
