The Ubuntu Cloud Archive

Canonical’s Ubuntu Cloud Archive (UCA) gives users the ability to install newer releases of OpenStack on an Ubuntu LTS release as they become available up through the next Ubuntu LTS release. Bug processing and patch contributions will follow standard Ubuntu practice and policy where applicable.

In order to allow for relatively easy upgrades, and still adhere to Ubuntu processes and policy, Canonical elected to have archive.canonical.com be the home of the cloud archive. Update paths will exist for each OpenStack release. For example, enabling “xenial-queens” will provide access to all OpenStack Queens packages built for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (binary and source), any updated dependencies required, and bug/security fixes made after release.

There are no plans to make available OpenStack packages for non-LTS releases in the cloud archive.

14.04

Starting with Ubuntu 14.10, newer releases of OpenStack are available via cloud archive for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Juno and Liberty are supported for 18 months each, and Kilo for 36 months. Mitaka, 16.04's default OpenStack version, is supported in the cloud archive for 3 years, i.e. until the end of the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS lifecycle.

16.04

Starting with Ubuntu 16.10, newer releases of OpenStack are available via cloud archive for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Newton and Pike are supported for 18 months each, and Ocata for 36 months. Queens, 18.04's default OpenStack version, is supported in the cloud archive for 3 years, i.e. until the end of the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS lifecycle.

18.04

Starting with Ubuntu 18.10, newer releases of OpenStack are available via cloud archive for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Rocky and Train are supported for 18 months each, and Stein for 36 months. When 20.04's OpenStack version is released that will be added to the cloud archive with support for 3 years, i.e. until the end of the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS lifecycle.
