And once more, ESM rears its head.ESM comes with no community support.  Support for ESM releases is for *paid Canonical support via Ubuntu Advantage subscriptions*.  The Community Council clarified this with Canonical who will be putting out a more descriptive document explaining ESM and this information.  None of the prior releases RE: ESM had any details about End of Standard Support - thats a new thing that was recently added to releases.  So yes ESM repos will get you additonal security patches but it won't extend to community support - that will require paid Canonical contracts.16.04 to 18.04 is a valid upgrade path so d-r-u will work. But you will still need to upgrade to 18.04 and I recommend doing that sooner than later.Thomas

I suspect that itat least does work until April 2023, when Ubuntu 18.04 standard supportends. If a release upgrade isn't needed, 16.04 should be (more orless) 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 initialfive-year maintenance period in April 2021, as it transitions to theextended security maintenance phase - with three additional years ofsecurity ensured.Learn more about Ubuntu 16.04 LTS moving to ESM  ›Free for personal useCanonical provides Ubuntu Advantage Essential subscriptions, whichinclude ESM, free of charge for individuals on up to 3 machines.
