I'm doing do-release-upgrade on a 16.04 server and it says that

3 installed packages are no longer supported by Canonical. You can 
still get support from the community. 

3 packages are going to be removed. 153 new packages are going to be 
installed. 500 packages are going to be upgraded.

Is it possible to get the list of the unsupported and deleted packages before doing the upgrade?

  • Runt ubuntu-support-status --show-unsupported pay attention to the No longer downloadable: part... do it after sources.list has been changed to the new release and source cache is up to date. – Ravexina Oct 7 '18 at 11:53
  • It's not possible to do so before the upgrade? – fbence Oct 7 '18 at 11:53
  • I guess not, in that case it inform you about current release's situation ... you can run it before upgrade actually takes place after source have been updated. – Ravexina Oct 7 '18 at 11:55
