Both 18.04 and 20.04 are "long-term support" releases, meaning
Canonical will continue to provide security updates and other bug
fixes in them for longer than the intermediate versions. 20.04 is,
as its number would seem to indicate, newer than 18.04 (by roughly
two years), so I wouldn't choose the older version unless you
specifically need to run older software on it which won't work on
the newer one for some reason.

Since you posted this to the OpenStack discussion mailing list, I
assume you're planning to install some version of OpenStack on
Ubuntu. If so, you should look at our tested runtimes to see which
platform was used to test the version of OpenStack you want to run:
