Looking online I can see mention in a cached version of a blog.ubuntu.com post that Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is EOL on 30th April 2019, however it has been updated to just April 2019. What is the official EOL date for 14.04 LTS?
The EOL of Ubuntu 14.04 is on the 17th of April 2019.
To obtain the EOL date of any Ubuntu distro you can use the following command
$ ubuntu-distro-info --all -yeol -f Ubuntu 14.04 LTS "Trusty Tahr" 29
It will print the days till support ends. Here 29 days.
To install the command use
$ sudo apt install distro-info
To get the date, use e.g. the
$ date +"%Y-%m-%d" --date '+29 day' 2019-04-17
You can automate this with
sed, e.g. to get a list of currently supported releases with their EOL date:
$ ubuntu-distro-info --supported -yeol -f | sed "s/.* \([0-9]*\)/echo -n ' &\r';date -d+\1day +%F/e" 2019-04-17 Ubuntu 14.04 LTS "Trusty Tahr" 28 2021-04-21 Ubuntu 16.04 LTS "Xenial Xerus" 763 2023-04-26 Ubuntu 18.04 LTS "Bionic Beaver" 1498 2019-07-18 Ubuntu 18.10 "Cosmic Cuttlefish" 120 2020-01-18 Ubuntu 19.04 "Disco Dingo" 304
According to Ubuntu Version History - Wikipedia
Normal LTS support is set to continue until 30 April 2019, after which Extended Security Maintenance will be available to Ubuntu Advantage customers and as a separate commercial purchase, as was the case previously with 12.04.
Considering the above statement normal LTS updates are expected to be received till 30 April '19.
