I noticed in the link, that Lubuntu 18.04 LTS will be supported until 
April 2011, which is 3 years (not 5).

I dug into this discrepancy, and found the following:

    The 'main' archive of /Ubuntu 18.04 LTS/ will be supported for 5
    years until April 2023. /Ubuntu 18.04 LTS/ will be supported for 5
    years for /Ubuntu/ Desktop, /Ubuntu/ Server, and /Ubuntu/ Core.
    /Ubuntu/ Studio /18.04/ will be supported for 9 months. All other
    flavors will be supported for 3 years.

This means that even though the main archive of 18.04 LTS is supported 
until April 2023, where Ubuntu has no i386 desktop support (and Lubuntu 
is apparently the only Ubuntu variant supporting i386 desktop), support 
of 32-bit desktop in Ubuntu will end in 2011, rather than the expected 

Please let me know if this is correct, or not.
