Since 17.10 Ubuntu has its archives still in Ubuntu Archives instead of old-releases. Is there any reason before this?


17.04 (Zesty) and 17.10 (Artful) have been migrated from archive.ubuntu.com to old-releases.

16.04 (Xenial), 18.04 (Bionic), 18.10 (Cosmic), 19.04 (Disco), and 19.10 (Eoan, currently in development) are on archive, but that’s normal, since they’re still supported or not yet released.

14.04 (Trusty) just reached EOL, and will eventually be migrated; there’s no set calendar for such migrations, the only guarantee is that it happens after EOL.

  • I remember I saw artful couple of days back on Ubuntu Archives. Still thank you for the answer :) – JHA May 10 at 14:08
