Release of Ubuntu 22.04.1 by Canonical

Linux is always developing and becoming better. Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu Linux, publishes point upgrades twice yearly to roll out new features and solve bugs. Now it’s simple to upgrade to Ubuntu 22.04.1 or download and install any previous version.

Ubuntu’s biannual updates are aimed to preserve the look and feel of the earlier versions and only add enhancements, in contrast to Windows 10, where Microsoft’s new releases are significant operating system upgrades in their own right. Ubuntu 22.04, also known as Jammy Jellyfish, has all of the features, in contrast to Windows, which has several distinct editions with various feature sets.

The Ubuntu Software Center is where you go to find and install any additional software that could be useful but isn’t included with the normal Ubuntu installation. There will be no bother or difficulty.

Ubuntu 22.04.x LTS has a typical five-year support lifecycle. You have access to it until April of 2027. Canonical offers 10 years of crucial maintenance, including security patches, if you find yourself using it often. This means that Ubuntu 22.04 can be used reliably until April 2032, a full decade from now.

All of the improvements, updates, and security patches that have been made to Jellyfish since its first release in April are included in this point release. This is a lot less work than getting three months’ worth of updates individually and applying them.

Nvidia R515 graphics driver support, Retbleed Spectre vulnerability mitigations for older Intel and AMD CPUs for Alder Lake systems, Dell XPS 13 9320 Alder Lake laptop compatibility patches, Intel AMX support, Intel IPU6 MIPI camera support, and RISC-V board support are just some of the specifics.

Snaps application bundles, such as the preinstalled Mozilla Firefox browser, would not have launched a week sooner if not for an installation difficulty. It has been taken care of at this point.

Those of you who have been using Ubuntu 20.04 LTS are likely to be the most thrilled with this new version. Upgrading from Ubuntu 20.04 to 22.04 was possible, however it was quite difficult.

Those using Ubuntu 20.04 LTS will soon be asked to update to 22.04 LTS from the desktop itself. Comparatively, moving from Ubuntu 20.04 to 22.04 is a breeze, however upgrading Linux Mint may be a challenge if you’re trying to use the most current LTS release.

Can you describe the simplicity involved? While working on this article, I completed it in approximately half an hour on my production Ubuntu desktop.
