Doesn't do-release-upgrade after April work anymore? I suspect that it
at least does work until April 2023, when Ubuntu 18.04 standard support
ends. If a release upgrade isn't needed, 16.04 should be (more or
less) good until April 2024. Am I mistaken?

"Is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS still supported beyond April 2021?

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS will still be supported beyond its free initial
five-year maintenance period in April 2021, as it transitions to the
extended security maintenance phase - with three additional years of
security ensured.
