The other VM are normal, it is only with Ubuntu 16.04 and its
LTS(smaller than 8GB, 8VCPU). sometimes, the ubuntu 16.04 encountered
problem that maybe printed some logs as blow:
ISOFS: Interleaved files not (yet) supported.
ISOFS: inode->i_ino = (14976).
ISOFS: File unit size != 0 for ISO file (14976).
