Sadly, this isn't a trivial update due to dependencies. However, Microsoft's own documentation says the version that is unsupported for real is 2.2.10, and 2.20 is still supported, even if they recommend the very latest one.

Starting in July 2020, the minimum supported version will be 2.2.41 for the Linux Agent.

* If the Linux Agent version is earlier than 2.2.10, you must update the VM by using the distribution package manager and by enabling auto-update.
* If the distribution vendor does not have the minimum Linux Agent version in the package repositories, the system is still in support. If the Linux Agent version is later than 2.1.7, you must enable the Agent auto-update feature. This will retrieve the latest version of code for extension handling.
* If the Linux Agent version is earlier than 2.2.10, or if the Linux system is out-of-support, we may require you to update the agent before we can offer support.
