CentOS Linux is a rebuild of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) source code. Major versions are supported with security and bugfix updates as long as its corresponding RHEL release is not EOL, except for CentOS Linux 8.

It was announced on December 8th, 2020 that work on CentOS Linux 8 will cease at the end of 2021 and that shift will focus to CentOS Stream. Support information for CentOS Stream are available on the CentOS Stream page.

More information is available on the CentOS website.

You should be running one of the supported release numbers listed above in the rightmost column.

You can check the version that you are currently using by running:

cat /etc/redhat-release
