I would like to know what is the best way to install a minimal Ubuntu setup similar to Arch. Now seeing that the mini.iso is gone is the Ubuntu Server a good option or something else? Thanks in advance.
You still can get mini.iso of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS from
and then build any type of system on top of it using Aptitude and other CLI/TUI-based lightweight tools without huge massive Snaps and cloud init.
