Ubuntu 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) End of Life reached on July 17 2020

This is a follow-up to the End of Life warning sent earlier this month
to confirm that as of today (July 17, 2020), Ubuntu 19.10 is no longer
supported. No more package updates will be accepted to 19.10, and it
will be archived to old-releases.ubuntu.com in the coming weeks.

The original End of Life warning follows, with upgrade instructions:

Ubuntu announced its 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) release almost 9 months ago, on
October 17, 2019, and its support period is now nearing its end. Ubuntu
19.10 will reach end of life on Friday, July 17 2020.

At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices will no longer include information
or updated packages for Ubuntu 19.10.

The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 19.10 is via Ubuntu 20.04.
Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FocalUpgrades

Ubuntu 20.04 continues to be actively supported with security updates
and select high-impact bug fixes. Announcements of security updates for
Ubuntu releases are sent to the ubuntu-security-announce mailing list,
information about which may be found at:

https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-security-announce

Since its launch in October 2004, Ubuntu has become one of the most
highly regarded Linux distributions with millions of users in homes,
schools, businesses and governments around the world. Ubuntu is Open
Source software, costs nothing to download, and users are free to
customise or alter their software in order to meet their needs.
