1 min read

Canonical issued a reminder today that Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) will stop supporting later this month and urge users to upgrade to the latest version as soon as possible. Ubuntu 18.10 was released on October 18 last year, equipped with GNOME 3.30 desktop environment and Linux Kernel 4.18 kernel. Because it is not an LTS version, it has only 9 months life cycle.

Ubuntu 18.10 will be discontinued on July 18, 2019, and will no longer accept security updates or software updates. Adam Conrad said in the email: “Ubuntu announced its 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) release almost 9 months ago, on October 18, 2018. As a non-LTS release, 18.10 has a 9-month support cycle and, as such, the support period is now nearing its end and Ubuntu 18.10 will reach end of life on Thursday, July 18th.”

If you are using the Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) operating system on your personal computer, you should consider upgrading to the latest version of Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) as soon as possible.
