This is great, but https://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release-lts still does not contain 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa) in it.

So I can’t upgrade from Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS to 20.04.1 LTS without passing -d to sudo do-release-upgrade .
But I expect that -d is not needed as stated in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FocalFossa/ReleaseNotes/ :

The -d switch is necessary to upgrade from Ubuntu 18.04 LTS as upgrades have not yet been enabled and will only be enabled after the first point release of 20.04 LTS.

So I have reported bug 1890936 about the problem.

Is there a zsync link for the Ubuntu ISO?
There are links for all the flavors.

I don’t believe this is a bug as such. It’s common for us to hold back upgrades for a bit until we’re super confident people will get a good experience.
