I have checked with “apt-mark hold cloud-init” and got the following mesage: “cloud-init was already set on hold.”
Is it safe to unhold it and upgrade it?

There is another method to update it, wich is:
in the first place to unhold the holded package, and then
My questions are:
I would not recomend apt dist-upgrade as it involves updating other staff from vesion to version.
Straight from DO support: “We pin cloud-init to a specified version in order to prevent upgrades from affecting the configuration options within your Droplet. While upgrades to cloud-init should not affect your Droplet, there have been certain situations where changes to the system had been performed due to cloud-init upgrades.”
Based on that, I would say that it “should” be safe to unpin and upgrade it, but why take the chance?
I had the same problem and it seems like a strange situation to me. Anyway, I fixed this by installing the
sudo apt install cloud-init.
