Support lifespan

What’s The Difference Between Lubuntu 20.04 LTS And This Release?

Lubuntu 20.04.5 is an image produced for convenience so that a fresh install of Lubuntu LTS does not require as many updates after install (as Lubuntu continues to release Stable Release Updates and security fixes to make your experience as smooth as possible and to fix any bugs, if you want to help us out with this, see below, we always need more help). If you do system updates regularly, you are already running Lubuntu 20.04.5 LTS, and if you install Lubuntu on a system using a Lubuntu 20.04 LTS image and do system updates, that system will also then be running Lubuntu 20.04.5 LTS. A brief list of the bugs fixed between 20.04 and 20.04.5 can be found here

Lubuntu Manual

The Lubuntu Team has been hard at work in polishing a Lubuntu Manual book to make it easy for new and experienced users alike to use their system more productively. The book can be found at Please note this manual link will cease to the 20.04 manual after Lubuntu 22.10 has released; as the LTS manual will then refer to the Lubuntu 22.04 LTS from then on.

Installs with this media will use the HWE kernel stack, using the 5.15 kernel from Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.
