You say this happens every time. Do you mean every time you run the import-pxe-files command or are you reinstalling and retrying? (If you are reinstalling anyway, I would recommend trying the Saucy instead of Raring version.) – Azendale Nov 18 '13 at 0:20
I have the same problem: Ubuntu Server 13.10 installed with MAAS directly from CD-ROM. – DL6ER Mar 26 '14 at 9:18

I had this same problem, just rebooted the server and ran the command:

sudo maas-import-pxe-files

and, problem solved.
