What happened to the option to choose between Unity and Gnome in Ubuntu?

Unity was officially dropped and no longer maintained by Canonicals, the company behind Ubuntu, starting from version 17.10. Therefore it’s not officially supported in recent versions of Ubuntu, but it is possible to install Unity on Ubuntu by using a PPA (personal package archive) or by manually building and installing it from the source code. This process is not recommended for novice users, as it can be complex and may cause stability issues or conflicts with other packages.

Additionally, using an older version of Ubuntu (16.04 or earlier) will have Unity as default option and no need to install it.

It’s worth noting that Unity is not actively maintained and you may run into compatibility issues, so it’s better to consider other alternatives like Gnome, KDE, Xfce, etc.
