Ubuntu 14 No longer updates


Hi guys,

I have 2 server machines both with ubuntu 14. I mainly use base sources for apt-get updates/upgrades and two other 3rd party apt-get official sources for MariaDB and another private software.

I understand there are less base updates for Ubuntu 14 but for the last 2 months or more, I am no longer getting anymore updates. Its acting like everything is up to date. No kernel, no library, no DB updates. Any Ideas?


After apt-get clean, apt-get update

Standard support ended April 2019. Consider upgrading to 16.04.

thx, I already run 16, 18 and centos on other machines. I need 14 for specific software. I just wanted to make sure to see what the reason was for the lack of updates. They just suddenly stopped.

If you really need 14.04, you have to pay for extended support:
Quote:
Businesses and enterprise users who don’t want to upgrade to a newer version of Ubuntu right now can choose to enrol in Ubuntu 14.04 ESM (Extended Security Maintenance) via Ubuntu Advantage.

ESM is a paid, stop-gap solution designed to give those managing essential infrastructure provisioned on 14.04 a little more time to plan an upgrade route to something newer,
Note that even flavors of 16.04 are EOL in april too:
Quote:
Ubuntu flavours based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS ‘Xenial Xerus’ also hit EOL this month.

Unlike the regular version of Ubuntu, most flavour releases, such as Kubuntu 16.04, only provide ‘long term support’ for 3 years.

16.04LTS EOL is April 2021

While it is possible to switch to an archived repository once a version hits EOL there are no longer any updates of any kind.

maybe think of using docker containers for the specific software programs you need to run?

Again: Standard support ended April 2019. 10.2.23 is the last version available before support ended.
As has been posted (see #6), perhaps you should purchase extended support?
