The version of package cloud-init in official repository of Debian 10.9 is 20.2.
This version 20.2 is far behind the latest released version 21.2.
Please check https://github.com/canonical/cloud-init
With cloud-init version >=21.1, we can support the feature “guest OS customization with cloud-init engine” in vmware vsphere.
Would you please help rebase the package cloud-init to the latest released version in Debian? Thanks
