Hi @rajmohanoff,

You can go ahead with the 20.04 LTS version of Ubuntu. There won’t be an issue with your projects.

Also regarding the amount that you have paid. If you have used a link mentioned in Bolt IoT and ML Training, you will get certain free credits to proceed with your projects. You will have to verify a payment method to verify your account and get trial credits. The amount that you have paid for verification will be refunded back to your credit card.

In case you have paid via Paypal, you won’t get any refund of the amount that you have paid. As per t&c of Digital Ocean, the amount that you have paid via Paypal will not be refunded but will be adjusted in future bills. You can use that amount in future bills.
