Hi @Andrew Lazurkevych,
Thank you for your question.
Please note that Ubuntu 22.04 images are available for AKS clusters starting version 1.25.
You can find this mentioned here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/generally-available-aks-support-for-ubuntu-2204/.
Therefore, I suggest upgrading the AKS cluster to v.1.25 by following this doc: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/aks/upgrade-cluster?tabs=azure-cli.
Please Accept the answer if the information helped you. This will help us and others in the community as well.
