I installed MAAS on Bionic by following the steps on their site. I was able to sudo maas init and set up a user, but I can't access the web UI either from another computer or locally using curl http://localhost:5240/MAAS/. All the documentation for this I found was very old, and described steps that don't seem to work on Bionic.

Side question: is MAAS worth installing in 2018 or should I look into alternatives?

For anyone else running into this problem:

Installing through apt doesn't seem to work on Bionic. Instead, try:

sudo snap install maas --devmode

After doing this and running sudo maas init, I was able to access the web UI.
