So, I am still using 14.04 at the moment and I know that end-of-support is coming at the end of this month unless you have extended security maintenance (which I don't).
However, I am a bit confused as to what exactly will happen. Searching online, I have seen two terms floating around: end-of-support and end-of-life. From what I can tell, both are different from what Canonical means when they refer to a release's lifespan. The trouble I have is telling if there is a difference between the two. Some pages I read treat them interchangeably while others do not. Some posts I have read use end-of-life to refer to when the repositories get moved/archived; thus preventing things such as the auto-update from working.
Regardless of which is which, when does the Ubuntu repository get archived? There doesn't seem to be a mention of that on the information page and the online posts I found simply mention that it happens, not when.
