I have an existing Rails app that's been sitting on an old Ubuntu 14.04 server on AWS, and I've recently moved the staging environment over to a new AWS EC2 instance running Ubuntu 18.04.
I'm not a Ubuntu expert by any means - hence this question - but with the very recent release of 20.04 and it being available on EC2, should I go for that if my goal is just to bring things up to speed in terms of security, performance, and general maintainability?
I went with 18.04 initially for the upgrade thinking that any issues I might encounter would be well covered on Stack Overflow, Digital Ocean tutorials, etc.
So I guess my question boils down to, is it prudent to not jump on a freshly released Ubuntu LTS release? Or is it generally accepted that the latest release is the best no matter what?
