Summary

Disco support ended in January 2020, and Focal does not have an announced EOL.

Something is now installing and configuring tzdata, which was throwing up an
interactive prompt to configure the timezone. Aside from being hostile to
automation, the prompt didn't actually accept input and hung the process. This
propagates the host's timezone into the image via environment variable in order
to skip the prompt, and avoid hardcoding a value.

I’ve run into this issue of tzdata prompting for user input in automation before, and worked around it by setting the DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive environment variable based on https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44331836/apt-get-install-tzdata-noninteractive. This might also help if an other system package starts prompting.
