Operating System upgrades

April 11, 2023

The EDI technical team is planning for a day in the very near future (TBD) of operating system upgrades from Ubuntu 18.04 to 22.04. This effort will entail a full day of system work, resulting in EDI's production and staging environments being unavailable, likely on two different days. The upgrade to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Long-term Support) is necessary since the current version of the operating system (Ubuntu 18.04) will no longer be supported after April 2023 and will affect the EDI Data Portal and the underlying data repository. EDI is currently testing its services in the Ubuntu 22.04 environment, which will be supported until April 2027, and will release a more detailed deployment plan within a few weeks, so please stay tuned.
