There is no single "latest stable version of Ubuntu iso".

Look at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases and you will see that several Ubuntu releases currently are supported.

For the "latest stable" one you can choose between
- 18.04 LTS (Long term support until 2023) and
- 19.10 (support will end in June 2020)

Downloads and links links are available at http://releases.ubuntu.com/

Possible wget commands are
wget http://releases.ubuntu.com/18.04.3/ubuntu-18.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso
respectively
wget http://releases.ubuntu.com/19.10/ubuntu-19.10-desktop-amd64.iso

Well I was not asking for LTS version.
Also you answered what I already stated that I don't want.
I'm not asking how to download specific version. I'm asking about latest version of Ubuntu (not LTS and NOT Daily Build)

BoQsc (boqsc) said : #3

These two that you pointed out are specific versions to download.

BoQsc (boqsc) said : #4

If someone is interested, there is a daily build that is unstable, but at least it is not a specific release, but the latest one.

eoan-desktop-amd64.iso

I just noticed that even this one is actually not latest and is a specific as well.

As you can see, this one will not download latest version of Ubuntu,
but the latest version of unstable Eoan Ermine, which is 19.10 version.

This question is not answered.

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #7

It seems that you are looking for a link "Ubuntu-latest-amd64.iso" which keeps the name but changes its target whenever a new Ubuntu release is published.
I am not aware that such shortcut would exist.

Still needs an answer.

"Still needs an answer."

Then please re-formulate your question to make clear what you are looking for (and not what you don't want).
