Hi Tom

According to 
https://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Debian#Debian_Packages_on_Koha the 
following distributions are currently supported:

* Debian 8 (Jessie)
* Debian 9 (Stretch)
* Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic)

Personally, I think I heard or anyway I feel like the developers are 
usually using the newer Debian version (thus Debian 9) which results in 
a smoother installation process. I'm not sure if it's true but it seems 
to me even if Koha can be installed on Ubuntu or even some other Linux 
distributions, it will often need some extra effort to make it work on them.

So if you're not absolutely depending on Ubuntu or any other 
distribution I would always recommend Debian GNU/Linux. Also just 
because Debian GNU/Linux is the base of Ubuntu anyway.

Hope this helps.
