Absolutely, I'm on Debian (and Ubuntu is Debian on steroids -
useless ones, some say ...) and I use Emacs version

  GNU Emacs 30.0.50 (build 1, x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, cairo
  version 1.16.0) of 2022-12-26 [commit

Emacs 25.1 was released 2016-09-17 [1] i.e. 6y 5m 27d ago!
So you are absolutely right, most certainly don't do
development on that!
