Where are the 16.04 images?

Hi,

I don't know if I am doing something wrong but I can't find any official image download for image ubuntu-mate-16.04.2-desktop-armhf-raspberry-pi.img.xz
I've been searching for hours and nothing, it's like it never existed on Ubuntu mate. Anyone has direct download link for it? I used to be able to find past releases on download page but not anymore.

Please see https://linuxconfig.org/install-ubuntu-16-04-mate-or-ubuntu-18-04-on-raspberry-pi

where the following command can be used to download the MATE 16.04 image:

wget https://ubuntu-mate.org/raspberry-pi/ubuntu-mate-16.04.2-desktop-armhf-raspberry-pi.img.xz

Good luck webassign.

Edit: Also see https://ubuntu-pi-flavour-maker.org/download/ where a torrent can be used to download the MATE 16.04 image.

A list of old images can be found here - but you'll need a torrent client. Others are still seeding (distributing) this version:

As @mdooley points out, the direct link is still available.
