Can you add the output of juju --debug --show-log status? Or juju --debug -v status? – Braiam Nov 4 '13 at 14:35
Also, which provider, and if ec2, which region? Although since tagged maas, guessing maas, in which case the common error is wrong mongo installed. Can you ssh into the machine allocated for bootstrap and do 'apt-cache policy mongodb-server'? – thumper Nov 5 '13 at 1:03

It looks like you might not have DNS working to get to the Juju Boostrap node.

What do you have set in MaaS for"Default domain for new nodes" under "Network Configuration" on the settings page of MaaS?

What is the output of cat /etc/resolv.conf?

What is the IP address of your MaaS server?

If I'm right about the DNS being the problem, you'll need to run sudo nano /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head and then put in the line nameserver <ip_of_your_maas_server>, save the file, run sudo resolvconf -u, and then try the juju status command again.
