Ubuntu 20.10 (Groovy Gorilla) reaches End Of Life on July 22 2021

Ubuntu announced its 20.10 (Groovy Gorilla) release almost 9 months ago, on October 22, 2020, and its support period is now nearing its end. Ubuntu 20.10 will reach end of life on July 22, 2021.

At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices will no longer include information or updated packages for Ubuntu 20.10.

The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 20.10 is via Ubuntu 21.04. Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at:

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

Ubuntu 21.04 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.

Pausing Aaron Farias Martinez’s involvement in Ubuntu

With regret, we have to inform you that Aaron Farias Martinez’s involvement in the Ubuntu Community will be on pause for an indefinite period of time. After discussions, the Community Council saw no other course of action but to ask him to refrain from his activities in the project, which did not reflect behavior acceptable in the Ubuntu Community.

In Ubuntu we take collaboration, a good working atmosphere, and our Code of Conduct seriously. If you have any questions, please let us know.
