SQL Server 2019 on Ubuntu 20.04 based containers

We are glad to announce the availability of SQL Server 2019 CU 10 container image built on ubuntu 20.04. It is fully supported for production use. The tag for the container image is : ‘2019-CU10-ubuntu-20.04’ and you can pull the image using the command below:

docker pull mcr.microsoft.com/mssql/server:2019-CU10-ubuntu-20.04


No more python 2 dependency across all supported distributions, starting from SQL Server 2019 CU 10.

As we all are aware that python 2 is no longer supported and has reached end of life, starting SQL Server 2019 CU 10 we have also moved away from python 2 dependency to python 3 for all supported SQL Server 2019 distributions.
