Additional information for Ubuntu 20.10 and Fedora 33 distributions
Ubuntu 20.10 and Fedora 33 distributions have reached end of standard support. Which means they no longer receive security updates and it is strongly recommended not to use these operating systems anymore.
OVHcloud strongly recommends customers using Ubuntu 20.10 to upgrade to Ubuntu 21.04 or later and Fedora 33 users to upgrade to Fedora 34 or later.
