ubuntustudio-focal-upgrade <reply> Ubuntu Studio 20.04 LTS was the last release with the Xfce desktop environment. Future versions use the KDE Plasma Desktop Environment. Due to this major change, upgrading from Ubuntu Studio 20.04 LTS to a newer version is not supported; clean install is the only upgrade path. Eickmeyer

32bit-#lubuntu <reply> Lubuntu 18.04 LTS is the last version to support 32-bit processors & will be supported until 2021. Support is highly limited, as we no longer provide images nor test packages for 32-bit. No other Ubuntu flavor offers 32-bit support. Discussion has been had to remove 32-bit packages from the archive. If `grep lm /proc/cpuinfo` succeeds, use 64-bit. wxl
