Ubuntu 16.04 is now at end-of-life, which means RAPIDS will no longer publish any images built on Ubuntu 16.04.

Additionally, gpuCI CPU builds will be converted over to use CentOS 7 instead of Ubuntu 16.04.


Dropping full support for Ubuntu 16.04 is an ongoing effort.


Users should consider switching to any of the following supported operating systems for any rapidsai/rapidsai image:

  • Ubuntu 18.04
  • Ubuntu 20.04
  • CentOS 7
  • CentOS 8
