Ubuntu EKS images now running on Jammy (22.04) from EKS 1.29 onward

Hi All!
AWS EKS images have been migrated to be based on jammy from EKS 1.29 forward for AMD64 and ARM64 (Graviton) instance types.


  • kernel 6.2.0 out of the box

As always, you can find them using our image finder, AWS Marketplace or AWSCLI:

aws ssm get-parameters --names /aws/service/canonical/ubuntu/eks/22.04/1.29/stable/current/amd64/hvm/ebs-gp2/ami-id

:warning: Please note that, as the new version is based on 22.04 and EKS 1.29, any other combination using AWSCLI will give you zero results.
