Ubuntu 10.04 – apt-get Update [Closed]


I know that Ubuntu 10.04 is no longer supported.

But I am still using it, becuase I use virtual machine (VirtualBox), and on previous trials to use any more updated Ubuntu version was too heavy, and slow, in my machine.

Now, when I try doing:

apt-get update 

I receive a bunch of errors:

Ign http://il.archive.ubuntu.com lucid-updates/multiverse Packages
Ign http://il.archive.ubuntu.com lucid-updates/multiverse Sources
Err http://il.archive.ubuntu.com lucid/main Packages
  404  Not Found
Err http://il.archive.ubuntu.com lucid/restricted Packages
  404  Not Found
Err http://security.ubuntu.com lucid-security/main Packages
  404  Not Found [IP: 80]
W: Failed to fetch     http://il.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/lucid/universe/binary-i386/Packages.gz  404  Not Found

I am sure I used to do that in the past without any issues.

Is it because Ubuntu 10.04 was removed from these repositories, or is it some other issue?

Best Answer

It's really trivial to verify, just browse to http://il.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/ (you can also drop theil from the front) and check the results.

The site is responding, you get a connection, but there is no lucid among the directories corresponding to Ubuntu releases.

Conclusion: the packages were removed.
