    For Anonymous' comment about making a template for Ubuntu 18.04 Server. If it helps here's a step by step guide I built myself while piecing together everything I needed to build a working Ubuntu 18.04 template for SCVMM 2016. We have our environment setup in a hybrid cloud config which is why I have some Azure stuff installed during the process.

    Ubuntu Template Build Steps:

    -Run normal Ubuntu install.

    -Install the Azure-tuned kernel
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install linux-azure

    -Install latest virtual kernel
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install linux-azure

    -Install python
    sudo apt-get install python

    -Install the VMM Tools

    ./install scvmmguestagent.

    -Replace the current repositories in the image to use Ubuntu's Azure repos.
    sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.bak
    sudo sed -i 's/[a-z][a-z]' /etc/apt/sources.list
    sudo apt-get update

    -Modify the kernel boot line for Grub to include additional kernel parameters for Azure.
    sudo vi /etc/default/grub
    *use the insert ( I ) command to append*
    Find the variable called GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT and edit it using the insert command to include the following parameters

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="console=tty1 console=ttyS0,115200n8 earlyprintk=ttyS0,115200 rootdelay=300"

    Save and close file.
    *Save the file by hitting the Esc key and then issuing the ":x" command.*
    sudo update-grub

    -Run a final update
    sudo apt-get update

    -Install the Azure Linux Agent:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install walinuxagent

    -Deprovision the virtual machine
    sudo waagent -force -deprovision
    export HISTSIZE=0

    Done. Shut her down and create your template using the disk you just created. So far it's been working for me.

    Hope this helps someone out there.
