Ubuntu 21.10 is no longer getting updates – you should do that now
Warning: Canonical no longer provides updates for Ubuntu 21.10 “Impish Indri”. You should do that now.
Ubuntu 21.10 Impish Indri is available for download
On June 14, 2022, the support period for Ubuntu 21.10 ended. So you will no longer get updates for this Ubuntu version and security gaps will no longer be closed. You should therefore definitely upgrade to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS now: Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy Jellyfish – Download and new features. After the upgrade, you have five years of peace, because that’s how long Canonical provides updates for Ubuntu 22.04.
Ubuntu 21.04 (“Hirsute Hippo”, the “hairy hippopotamus”), which was released in the spring, has now been replaced by Ubuntu 21.10 as the latest Ubuntu version. Canonical announced this here. Ubuntu 21.10 is called Impish Indri. The English word “impish” means “impish” or “impish”. An “Indri” is a species of monkey, more precisely a species of lemur that lives on the island of Madagascar. So Ubuntu 21.10 is a mischievous lemur/monkey.
The main new features of Ubuntu 21.10 “Impish Indri” include: Kernel 5.13, Gnome 40, Firefox 92 (supplied as Snap by default), Libreoffice 7.2.1, Thunderbird 91.1.2 and nftables as the default backend for the firewall.
Canonical had already made the official wallpapers for Ubuntu 21.10 available for download as JPGs and PNGs in different resolutions some time ago. You can find wallpaper downloads here.
Ubuntu 21.10 only gets nine months of support. Users who want to be provided with updates for a longer period of time without having to upgrade to a new Ubuntu version should therefore better install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and remain loyal to it. The next new LTS version will then be Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, which will be released in April 2022. All LTS versions receive five years of support and, for a fee, even ten years of support (Extended Maintenance Release, ESM).
