  • There will be a significant number of Linux machines that will be unable to Visual Studio Code (VS Code) v1.86 (the latest version).

    This is due to VS Code v1.86 requiring glibc >= 2.28.

    Impacted Linux distros include Ubuntu 18.04, RHEL7 / CentOS 7, Amazon Linux 2, and more.

    Impacted users include many researchers in medicine / government / academia, scientific equipment, Amazon EC2 customers, and others.

    Some potential workarounds posted in the GitHub thread, but no definitive support path for those who are unable to upgrade at this time.
