My cloud config template file does not seem to be working when I use it to boot up a droplet in Digital Ocean?

I’m using Terraform to spin up a DO droplet, using an Ubuntu and Docker image. Checkout below:

resource "digitalocean_droplet" "web" {

  image  = "docker-20-04"
  name   = "web"
  region = "nyc3"
  size   = "s-1vcpu-1gb"

  ssh_keys = []
  user_data = "I2Nsb3Vk #.....etc......"

user_data is my cloud-config template encoded in base64.

I ssh into the droplet and notice that the packages listed in the template below are not getting installed.

package_upgrade: true
package_update: true
  - build-essential
  - libmariadbclient-dev
  - libjpeg62-turbo-dev
  - zlib1g-dev
  - libwebp-dev
  - libpq-dev
  - postgresql
  - postgresql-contrib

Is there something wrong with my cloud config file above?
