Question

Why was the lamp-18-04 slug used for the new 20.04 image?

I just suffered a ~1 hour server outage on a routine redeploy due the the image slug lamp-18-04 actually deploying Ubuntu 20.04. You can see in the screenshot that the Digital Ocean API returns the slug for the new LAMP image based on Ubuntu 20.04 as lamp-18-04!

Was this intentional?

In my opinion this is a critical issue and should be fixed ASAP. If the lamp-18-04 slug is no longer available it should be removed, not redirected.

The lamp-18-04 image needed to be rebuilt. It is live now.

I’m terribly sorry for your outage. The Ubuntu 20.04 image is now correctly tagged as lamp-20-04. We are updating our process to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
