Ubuntu 21.04 – possible stability issues

While Ubuntu version 21.04 was released back in April, IST IT will not roll it out IST devices as we only use LTS versions.

We recommend that all users do not update to Ubuntu 21.04. This is because the kernel versions are untested in our environment and may lead to stability issues and/or out of date drivers.

You can check your Ubuntu version via the following terminal command:

lsb_release -a

If you have already updated to version 21.04 on your IST laptop and are experiencing issues we recommend reverting back to the latest stable 20.04 version via a clean installation. To proceed please back up all your data to your home or group drive and bring your laptop to IT Support.
