With cloudinit script / user data would you mind quote what you are trying accomplish during the instance launch..? Also are using Ubuntu cloud images or ..!!? Are you using the same user data script for both cirros and Ubuntu here in this scenarios..

It should be the problem with the ubuntu image. Did you created that ubuntu image by your own ? If it is, then download the ubuntu cloud image for openstack from ubuntu cloud image repo

This image should work without issue.

after downloading the image from the above link. Open the openstack Horizon and select create image from image tab. Then in the option window, choose the downloaded image by selecting "image file location" option. Select format as"QCOW2" from the list. This will upload that image to glance.
