Go take a look at this page first of all: Cent OS 8 End-of-Life Announcement | cPanel Blog. I just got an E-Mail about it. It is finally happening.
For those who did not get the E-Mail, that is why I have created this thread. *cPanel is going to support Ubuntu LTS!*

Also see this thread: https://features.cpanel.net/topic/debian-support-and-ubuntu-server-lts-support#comment-56470.

I would personally ask cPanel Staff to make a post about it here. Maybe, they are planning to make the post when the support for Ubuntu launches.
Also, I've been waiting for it for a long time, I'm sure most of you guys are.

It'sHappening.jpg!!!!!
I have a question, that is: how will apache be installed in the Ubuntu LTS cPanel? Using the source package, or the apt package? Or maybe they install the yum package into ubuntu, which I am confused about, and which probably won't happen. How will easyapache work in Ubuntu?

@Chi.C.J.Rajeeva Lochana - we haven't made any of those decisions yet, but we'll post updates and documentation on that process as soon as we have them.
Since the news and my last read, cPanel is going to support CentOS 8, cloudlinuxOS 8 and the upcoming almalinux

but will cPanel also support Ubuntu LTS ? or was that a freakout of a moment when we all Heard About CentOS 8 EOL 2021.

- Is cPanel still going to Support Ubuntu LTS and are they currently working on a cPanel version for Ubuntu LTS as of 1-19-2021 ?

Thanks
Spiro

They are probably. But maybe @cPanelLauren knows.

@Chi.C.J.Rajeeva Lochana - Lauren doesn't come around anymore as she's working on internal projects :D

We're definitely still moving forward with Ubuntu though! What and how hasn't been determined, but there will be very visible announcements when that is made official.
thank you @cPRex that is awesome to hear and more awesome when it's finally in writing ( Officially ) :)

They have written it in their blog. Not sure if that is not official...

They have written:
  • We are accelerating support for cPanel on Ubuntu LTS, and expect to deliver a production-ready version in late 2021.
