    Package Support Time

    Hello,

    I'm currently running Ubuntu 12.04 on my home server, however I'm trying to fin the command that will tell me how long each package will be supported for. I remember seeing it before and it said "X Y Z packages will be supported until 2014" and "A B C packages will be supported until 2013".

    Does anyone know the command I'm referring too?

    Thanks,

    I think you may use something like

    $ apt-cache show linux-image-generic | grep ^Supported
    Supported: 5y

    ubuntu-support-status did not help in Ubuntu 13.04. It said I had 132 unsupported packages, including cheese and gdebi -- and gave no hint about how long Ubuntu 13.04 would be supported.
