The download subcommand will download an image matching your system's architecture:

imgchroot download <distro> <release>

Currently the command only supports ubuntu as a valid distro.

The download can resume an previous attempt if it was cancelled or connection is lost. Download will not re-download an image if it already exists.

Below is example output:

$ imgchroot download ubuntu bionic
