For `dist: bionic`, Xenial VM is used instead with `language: rust`

Hello there,

I have an image using dist: bionic on which I try to install extra debian packages.
But for some reason it installs the Xenial version of the debs rather than the Bionic ones.


Build dist: bionic


Get:1 xenial-updates/main amd64 libsqlite3-dev amd64 3.11.0-1ubuntu1.2 [509 kB]

Did I miss anything here? Thanks!


Changed the title to reflect the cause; see

This has been reported in Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS (Bionic Beaver) but better create a separate issue for it.


Without going into too much detail, I will say that there is currently no Bionic image capable of building languages other than Perl, Python and Ruby. (These are arbitrary choices, and we will work on expanding the list.)


Ah that explains it then as I’m using Rust.
I updated the title of the ticket accordingly then.
