Ubuntu 14.04 is reaching its end of life on April 30, 2019.
This means there will be no security and maintenance updates for Ubuntu 14.04 users beyond this date. You won’t even get any updates for installed applications and you won’t be able to install a new application using apt command or the Software Center without manually modifying the sources.list.
Ubuntu 14.04 was released almost five years ago. That’s the life of a long term support release of Ubuntu. Check Ubuntu version and see if you are still using Ubuntu 14.04. If that’s the case either on desktops or on servers, you might be wondering what should you do in such a situation.
The easiest way would be to upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. This can be done from within Ubuntu 14.04. Another option would be to take a backup of your server and do a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
Corporate and enterpise users can pay for extended security maintenance and continue using Ubuntu 14.04.
