Official support for Ubuntu 19.10 ‘Eoan Ermine’ ended on July 17, 2020.
Enthusiasts engaged on the extant edition past this date will need (read: want) to expedite plans to emigrate to the next available release, which is the fabulously fast Ubuntu 20.04 ‘Focal Fossa’.
The Ubuntu 19.10 release arrived on October 17, 2019. As a non-LTS release it gets 9 months of on-going app updates and security patches.
And those 9 months are now up.
After July 17 you won’t get new versions of Firefox automatically or any critical security patches. Many third-party developers also stop building packages for unsupported Ubuntu releases.
The good news is that it’s easy to upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS from 19.10. Like: “click a button” easy. And with GNOME 3.36, a newer Linux kernel, and flicker-free boot experience to enjoy, there’s plenty of incentive for you to do so!
A half-way decent internet connection, a spare 20 minutes, and a mug of something hot is all you need (okay: drink is optional) to migrate over. No reinstall necessary.
And don’t forget: Ubuntu 20.04 is a long-term support release backed by 5 years of ongoing updates, patches, and new kernel releases. Which means once you upgrade to it you have the choice to not upgrade to anything else until 2025!
