Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) End of Life reached on July 23, 2015

This is a follow-up to the End of Life warning sent earlier this month to confirm that as of today (July 23, 2015), Ubuntu 14.10 is no longer supported. No more package updates will be accepted to 14.10, and it will be archived to old-releases.ubuntu.com in the coming weeks.

The original End of Life warning follows, with upgrade instructions:

Ubuntu announced its 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) release almost 9 months ago, on October 23, 2014. As a non-LTS release, 14.10 has a 9-month month support cycle and, as such, the support period is now nearing its end and Ubuntu 14.10 will reach end of life on Thursday, July 23rd. At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices will no longer include information or updated packages for Ubuntu 14.10.

The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 14.10 is via Ubuntu 15.04. Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VividUpgrades

Ubuntu 15.04 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:

https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-security-announce

Since its launch in October 2004 Ubuntu has become one of the most highly regarded Linux distributions with millions of users in homes, schools, businesses and governments around the world. Ubuntu is Open Source software, costs nothing to download, and users are free to customise or alter their software in order to meet their needs.
