Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) Reached End of Life on April 10, 2012

The support period for Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) ended on April 10, 2012.  Ubuntu Security Notices no longer include information or updated packages for Ubuntu 10.10.

The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 10.10 is via Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal).  Instructions and caveats for the upgrade can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NattyUpgrades.  Before you upgrade, make sure you have all updates applied to your current version.

Note that upgrades to version 11.04 and beyond are only supported in multiple steps, via an upgrade first to 11.04, then to 11.10. Both Ubuntu 11.04 and Ubuntu 11.10 continue to be actively supported with security updates and select high-impact bug fixes.

    Thanks for the reminder. I have to update the laptop in prep for 12.04 LTS. It seems odd that an LTS would expire before the next LTS has been released, though.

    You’re welcome. I try to keep up with these things, because upgrading a non-LTS version can involve a lot of steps.
