Ubuntu 20.10 Groovy Gorilla support expires soon – these are the options

Canonical only offers 9 months of support for non-Ubuntu lts versions. For Groovy Gorilla, that means the operating system released last October will be removed the scope of the aid in July, more specifically on 22 July 2021.

After that date, there are no more upgrades allowed for the operating system, so the upgrade is more than desirable, and best of all, free.

The Ubuntu 20.10 user has several options. If you plan to stay with Ubuntu, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Bionic Beaver (April 2023), Ubuntu 21.04 Hirsute Hippo (January 2022), and Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Focal Fossa (April 2025) are still supported.

If you are going to survive the job with just an upgrade without doing a clean install, the only option is Ubuntu 21.04. If, on the other hand, the search has a longer support period, both Bionic Beaver and Focal Fossa are good options. However, a clean installation is required to access them.

Ubuntu 20.10 can be updated from the operating system via its own Software Updates tool or directly from the command line.
