Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) End of Life reached on July 17 2014
Posted on: 07/18/2014 09:39 AM

Ubuntu 13.10 has been discontined

This is a follow-up to the End of Life warning sent last month to
confirm that as of today (July 17, 2014), Ubuntu 13.10 is no longer
supported. No more package updates will be accepted to 13.10, and
it will be archived to old-releases.ubuntu.com in the coming weeks.

The original End of Life warning follows, with upgrade instructions:

Ubuntu announced its 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) release almost 9 months
ago, on October 17, 2013. This was the second release with our new 9
month support cycle and, as such, the support period is now nearing
its end and Ubuntu 13.10 will reach end of life on Thursday, July
17th. At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices will no longer include
information or updated packages for Ubuntu 13.10.

The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 13.10 is via Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/TrustyUpgrades

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS continues to be actively supported with security
updates and select high-impact bug fixes. Announcements of security
updates for Ubuntu releases are sent to the ubuntu-security-announce
mailing list, information about which may be found at:

https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-security-announce

Since its launch in October 2004 Ubuntu has become one of the most
highly regarded Linux distributions with millions of users in homes,
schools, businesses and governments around the world. Ubuntu is Open
Source software, costs nothing to download, and users are free to
customise or alter their software in order to meet their needs.

On behalf of the Ubuntu Release Team,

Adam Conrad
