Upgrading Ubuntu 20 to Ubuntu 22 – software versions upgrade table – head-to-head

In the following article a comparison between two LTS versions of Ubuntu is presented – Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal) versus Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Jammy). The latest version of Ubuntu 20.04 and Ubuntu 22.04 (13.05.2022) is used to generate the software versions below.

In the Desktop world upgrading to the new and latest version of a Linux distribution is almost mandatory, but in the server world, upgrading is more complicated. The first step in updating a server is to check what software versions come with the new distribution version and then check whether the running custom (application) software supports the software versions. For example, updating to a new distribution version, which comes with PHP 8.1, but the current application supports only 7.4 is not very wise and in addition, the current version may have years of support in the future.

But as it may be seen below, the new Ubuntu server 22.04 LTS brings much newer versions compared to even the latest updates from Ubuntu server 20.04 LTS most of the latest server software.
