What this PR does / why we need it:

Fixes #4818

Using the actual username as USER value makes a PodSecurityPolicy-enabled kubernetes cluster refuse to start the pod:

  Type     Reason          Age                 From                                           Message

  Normal   Pulled          41s (x72 over 10m)  kubelet, k8spoc-worker001  Container image "" already present on machine

Changing USER to its numeric counterpart fixes this behaviour.
