The Debian family doesn't really make use of different runlevels, they only use runlevel 2 and runlevels 3-5 are not used, but the same as runlevel 2. If you want to have a runlevel without GUI you have to make it yourself, I think that Ubuntu has a graphical tool for it, but it should also be possible to configure that over the commandline. In the past I would have used sysv-rc-conf for that, but since Ubuntu changed to Upstart I don't know how to do it. All you have to do is to disable the display manager.

Hi,

explicitly including the term "upstart" in a duckduckgo search seems to provide the information you need:

You can just install ubuntu server which has no GUI.
