This is just a quick reminder, if you’re still not aware that Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) has reached End-of-Life.
Simply put this means you will no longer receive updates, Canonical and the developers of Ubuntu will no longer support it.
Although announcements have gone round about 17 July, 2014 being the date for Ubuntu 13.10 End-of-life some users still haven’t upgraded of even knew about it. If you still haven’t upgraded to the latest release Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Long Term Support) is supported until 2019
Ubuntu announced its 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) release almost 9 months ago, on October 17, 2013. This was the second release with our new 9 month support cycle and, as such, the support period is now nearing its end and Ubuntu 13.10 will reach end of life on Thursday, July
17th. At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices will no longer include information or updated packages for Ubuntu 13.10.
