As part of a continuous re-evaluation of our third-party software requirements, we regularly add and remove support for versions of operating systems, persistence providers, and web browsers.
On this note, we are planning to end support for Ubuntu 18.04 beginning with the ThingWorx release targeted for mid-CY2022. Per its release cycle, Ubuntu will move version 18.04 into Extended Security Maintenance at this point, meaning it will no longer receive regular maintenance updates.
PTC will continue to support Ubuntu 20.04 for the immediate future and will consider supporting Ubuntu 22.04 once it becomes Generally Available (GA).
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks for the heads-up Walter. I'm wondering if all of the ThingWorx family which is currently supported on 18.04 LTS will be supported on 20.04 LTS? Thingworx Kepware Edge comes to mind as one that may not yet be supported on 20.04 LTS.
Thank you for the inquiry. Like the ThingWorx group, Kepware does continuous re-evaluation of our third-party software requirements, we regularly add and remove support for versions of operating systems.
As such we will be following a similar timeline to ThingWorx with regards to Ubuntu version support.
