Ubuntu Touch OTA-17 is still based on the rather outdated Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and is still transitioning to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. Since the current work of the development team is focused on the migration of Ubuntu 20.04, the change in OTA-17 is not very large. The next version of Ubuntu Touch OTA-18 is estimated to be based on Ubuntu 16.04 until the team is satisfied with the Ubuntu 20.04 migration.
