I want to download latest Edubuntu version from the official Edubuntu website, but its links fail. Can you fix it?

Sorry for my English and best regards, Stano.

Since Edubuntu itself is no longer supported, and has not been updated since 2014, I suggest you install Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS, then once installation is complete and you have rebooted, use apt to install it with run sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade && sudo apt install edubuntu-desktop which gives you everything Edbuntu provided, yet on a modern version of Ubuntu which is supported until April of 2023.

Why is there no modern Edubuntu package? The volunteers who were maintaining it don't maintain it anymore, and asked it be removed as an Official Flavor of Ubuntu, which is why it now appears as Depreciated, or no longer appears at all.

Edubuntu is discontinued. The latest release was 14.04.

    And 14.04 is past End of Life, so therefore Edubuntu is as well. – Thomas Ward Aug 14 at 16:26

    @K7AAY I think the "(14.04)" on that page is intended to mean that Edubuntu became an official derivative starting with the 14.04 release, and thus that questions about it were on-topic starting with that release. Newly asked questions asking for help doing something on Edubuntu 14.04 (besides upgrading it) are probably off-topic under our policy about "end of life" releases. But installing and using the software provided by tasks or metapackages like edubuntu-desktop in supported Ubuntu releases is almost certainly on-topic. – Eliah Kagan Aug 15 at 13:56
  • Tossed that into meta meta.askubuntu.com/questions/18764/… for deeper minds than mine to ponder. – K7AAY Aug 15 at 15:17
