How to install LUKS encrypted Ubuntu 18.04.x Server and enable remote unlocking

Much has been changed since my last post about LUKS remote unlock workaround. This is the updated version on how to set things up properly.

Remote unlocking of LUKS-encrypted root in Ubuntu/Debian

Not so long ago, remote unlocking of a LUKS-encrypted root partition was difficult to setup. While essential for headless servers, all required steps needed to be done manually and compatibility was a concern. Luckily, it is much simpler to do so in recent versions of Ubuntu/Debian. Unlocking an encrypted root remotely *should* be as simple as installing a single package... We'll see about that in a moment.
