    karmic-security updates gone?

    Hello,

    I have some computers running Ubuntu 9.10 with a vbox windows os. until today, the computers were working ok. today, I tried to install ssh on one of the computers. I got the following:

    Code:

    I went to http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/ and noticed that the "karmic-security" folder is no longer there. Am I no longer allowed to update or install new programs from the repository on ubuntu 9.10 computers? If I can not download from "http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/", is there an alternative mirror I can use?

    Thanks,

    Karmic went "end of life" in April and won't have any more security updates.

    But you can change your mirrors in /etc/apt/sources.list to "http://old-releases.ubuntu.com" for purposes of installing ssh.
