  • Ubuntu 21.04 EOL on Jan. 20

    • This topic has 1 reply, 1 voice, and was last updated 2 weeks ago by anonymous.

    Ubuntu announced its 21.04 (Hirsute Hippo) release almost 9 months
    ago, on April 22, 2021, and its support period is now nearing its
    end. Ubuntu 21.04 will reach end of life on January 20, 2022.

    At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices will no longer include
    information or updated packages for Ubuntu 21.04.

    The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 21.04 is via Ubuntu 21.10.
    Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at:

    Ubuntu 21.10 continues to be actively supported with security updates
    and select high-impact bug fixes. Announcements of security updates
    for Ubuntu releases are sent to the ubuntu-security-announce mailing
    list, information about which may be found at:

      One way to see how much time remains for distribution maintenance if your Ubuntu GUI flavor (Budgie, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, etc.) does not have the command ‘ubuntu-support-status’ is to open About click on Software and Updates and click on Updates.

      (The program name for Software & Updates when using the terminal starts with ‘software-properties’. Typing ‘software’ and using tab to autocomplete the name will help also, as it may have a different ending for other Ubuntu flavors.)
