Last updated: July 19, 2020

Ubuntu 18.04

Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine reached end of life on July 17 2020. Users are recommended to upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

Ubuntu 19.10 was released 9 months ago, on October 17, 2019. As a non-LTS release, it has 9 months support. Now it is no longer supported by Canonical. No more security and package updates will be accepted to 19.10.

Users are argued to upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04, a LTS release with 5-year support. To get started, do following steps one by one:

  1. Disable third-party repositories by Software & Updates -> Other Software.
  2. Launch Software Updater and install all the updates after checking for updates.
  3. You may restart your computer to complete updates.
  4. Launch Software Updater again, and you’ll see option to upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04
