It may not show up in the marketplace, but you can find it via 'filter'
when launching
a virtual machine.  Search for 'Ubuntu 18.04' and you will see the image in
the
results.  In order to get an official Canonical made image, make sure the
'Publisher'
is 'Canonical'.

The Ubuntu Project and Canonical build and publish these images in

With the 'az' cli tool (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cli/azure)
you can list images available by 'Canonical' with:

 $ az vm image list --all --publisher=Canonical
 ...
   {
    "offer": "UbuntuServer",
    "publisher": "Canonical",
    "sku": "18.04-DAILY-LTS",
    "urn": "Canonical:UbuntuServer:18.04-DAILY-LTS:18.04.201805220",
    "version": "18.04.201805220"
  },
  ..
   {
    "offer": "UbuntuServer",
    "publisher": "Canonical",
    "sku": "18.04-LTS",
    "urn": "Canonical:UbuntuServer:18.04-LTS:18.04.201805220",
    "version": "18.04.201805220"
  },


You can then also launch an image by the 'sku' shown there with:
$ az vm create --name=testvm --resource-group=my-resource-group \
     --location=westus2 --image=Canonical:UbuntuServer:18.04:latest

The ':latest' means to automatically select the newest available image with
that sku.
