Questions can be migrated at Closing>Off-Topic>Migration, but only to the targets "Unix and Linux Meta" and "Stack Overflow", but not "Ask Ubuntu".

Ask Ubuntu is a very probable target, simply because there are questions that are not technically wrong here, but much better suited for Ask Ubuntu.

    A similar question from two days earlier: unix.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/5483 In general, you can flag any question as "in need of moderator intervention" and explain where you want it migrated and why. There has been a total of zero migrations to AskUbuntu in the last 90 days (and 3 from there to here).

Above and beyond Why can we not vote to migrate a question to superuser.com?, there's some previous history here:

The last time we migrated a question to Ask Ubuntu from here was on August 15th of 2019 after the post was flagged by its author. It remains open and upvoted on Ask Ubuntu.

We also have the Help Center post, What topics can I ask about here? which says:

Note that Ubuntu posts are a special case. If your question applies to Ubuntu only, or you're looking for answers that are Ubuntu-specific, you should post it on the Ask Ubuntu Stack Exchange site. If your question applies to other distros or you welcome more generic solutions, you're in the right place here.
