Bug Description

This is supposed to be the location for the 20.04 Server installation docs, as provided in the Server Guide[1]. However this page says the docs are delayed and to use the 18.04 docs instead. That's fine, however it provides no link to the 18.04 docs.

Note: as of 2020.04.23 publication of the 20.04 installation guide is delayed. Use the 18.04 version in the meantime, as there haven't been any edits anyhow.

The material in this document is available under a free license, see Legal for details.
For information on contributing see the Ubuntu Documentation Team wiki page. To report errors in this documentation, file a bug.

Further more, clicking on the "Official Documentation" link at the top of that page doesn't give me an option for 18.04 docs either, it is just the same broken URL (

So after being told to use the 18.04 docs, there is no way on this page to actually see the 18.04 docs at all.

Expected: The page should provide a link to the 18.04 docs until the 20.04 docs are available.

I had troubles compiling the installation guide on a 20.04 computer.
Additionally, i had an issue with the redirects to a the new serverguide site.

The installation guide will be there past noon UTC.

i was not aware of the "Official Doumentation" link issue, but it should also be fixed upon tomorrow's publication.

Sorry for your troubles.
