OCS not displaying full OS version on main listing

I've done a Fresh install of OCS 2.5 (Ubuntu Packages) on Ubuntu 20.04. All computers with agent installed logged in and registered their data.

However I have a bounch  computers that in the main listing on the OS column they just say "Ubuntu" without version. If I click on one of them, I see in the details the OSNAME and OSVERSION are correctly listed.
It's a little group but anoyes me. Thanks for your help.

Some ocs Ubuntu agents only register Ubuntu as osname. I think the osname is registered only in the hardware table and that info is displayed in the ocs main page.

Thanks pchamorro for bringing some light.

I have a lot of ubuntu servers (from 12.04 to the latest 20.04.1). Most of the appear correctly identified in the main page. This handfull of servers (5 exactly) don't.

They are not of the same version (18.04, 20.04 and older), the IT staff changed the agent on the affected computers and nothing changed (still displays ubuntu).

How is the OSName obtained? I'm thinking that something might be changed manually on those computers.

I run this command from one of the Ubuntu servers that only registers "Ubuntu":

ocsinventory-agent --debug -i --stdout|grep -i osname

And the result is:
I don't know if that helps.

Which version of ocsinventory-agent ?

 Hi !!! Thenks frank for your interest:

All the servers are using OCS-NG_unified_unix_agent_v2.4.2. All are Ubuntu, three are reported as Ubuntu 18.04, the remaining two are reported Ubuntu 20.04. 

The five in the main page listing are reported as just "Ubuntu", while the other Ubuntu servers report as "Ubuntu YY.MM.version"

Any idea is appreciated.
