Either way, basically root is needed, so I am wondering what
Charles' use case is here..

The problem I would like to solve is dpkg interrupting upgrades when
/etc/sudoers is updated, because the file used in Debian's images is modified. Using sudoers.d is indeed the good solution, that I overlooked when inspecting
the Ubuntu image.

root@ip-10-148-5-107:/etc# cat sudoers.d/90-cloudimg-ubuntu
# ubuntu user is default user in cloud-images.
# It needs passwordless sudo functionality.
Not sure what you mean by 'interrupting' but I don't see how this is a bug and its for Ubuntu images not Debian all the same. The original mail was to allow the group sudo, not ubuntu too. For non-human upgrades to the sudo package, how the debian maintainer scripts manage /etc/sudoers should be checked out when using DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive as this file is not provided physically in the package itself, http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/amd64/sudo/filelist

Glad you found a solution :)
