They had a problem with the multiple versions so they removed it. I dont know if they’re gonna bring them back but acording to this: http://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digitalocean/suggestions/3276477-allow-custom-images they started a “custom image” system. We just need to wait :)

Months of warning ? I am not sure if that makes any sense at all. I noticed the problem when I tried to create a new droplet. The mere fact that DO can not support Arch shows the company’s inability to work with the best of Linux technologies. I wouldn’t put a huge blame on DO since they just started and probably they jumped into Arch a bit too quickly. Anyway, I am glad that I moved to Linode. I will definitely consider DO when I have a non-Arch requirement.

@ FlevasGR Arch is a rolling release. All they need do is create 1 image for the forseeable future. Job done.

Unfortunately, DigitalOcean no longer supports Arch at this time. The currently supported platforms are: Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, Fedora, and CoreOS.
