Cubbli at the University of Helsinki

Cubbli (Common Ubuntu based Linux) is the University of Helsinki’s Linux distribution. Cubbli is based on Ubuntu and has been modified to meet the University’s needs. 

The current, supported Cubbli version is 22.04. Version 20.04 will only receive security updates. Support for version 18.04 will end in April 2023 and computers running it will be shut out from the network on 31 May 2023. We recommend that you always use the latest version. Read more about upgrading from the Cubbli developer’s wiki (Note: Wiki in English only) or contact Helpdesk to have your operating system updated.
