    If you want a specific deb you go to here http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/ where there is no codename and all packages.

    I wasn't talking about package URLs. You shouldn't be messing with that directly. Look here: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/

    Seriously? It's way easier for me to remember "eoan" or "disco" than "19.04" or "19.10". The latter names are too generic.

    It is called 20.04. Focal Fossa is the internal development name. In the releases directory they are all numbered according to yy.mm.
