Ubuntu 16.04 End of Life in April 2021

We know many of us are running Ubuntu as their main operating system, especially on server or VPS.

Ubuntu 16.04 End of Life (EOL) is scheduled for April 30, 2021. Make sure to prepare in advance by upgrading or migrating servers running on Ubuntu 16.04 systems.

I would especially warn delegates, because after April 30, 2021, Canonical will not release any security patches or bug fixes for Ubuntu 16.04. As version 16.04 is slowly on its way out, prepare for its EOL.
:point_right: After that date, your node will be vulnerable to security breaches.


  • Either you run an upgrade of your system to Ubuntu 16.04
  • or you set up a new VPS with Ubuntu 20.04 (or another Linux distro) and transfer your existing UNS Docker compose configuration
  • or you have already upgraded all your systems :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
