Question

Updating Nginx on Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS

Is it possible to update it on this version of Ubuntu? As when I’m trying

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nginx/stable

It says

**Only Non-End-of-Life Ubuntu Releases are supported in this PPA**

And

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get --only-upgrade install nginx

Says “nginx is already the newest version.” even it 1.4.6

I think that Ubuntu 14 would no longer be supported so I guess that you would see quite a lot of things not working/installing/updating. I would recommend upgrading your Ubuntu version rather than trying to update only Nginx. That way you would make sure that you have the latest security patches for Ubuntu and the latest repository packages for all of the rest of your services.
