    Update command does not work

    Hello friends,

    Please i have tried several times to update both Ubuntu 12.10 desktop version and 13.04 server version without any success.
    Each time i tried to run sudo apt-get update or sudo apt-get upgrade the following errors always returns.

    Err http://ng.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring/universe fail2ban all 0.8.7.1-1

    Please what am I doing wrong?

    Thanks

    You have waited too long. 12.10 and 13.04 have both reached end of life and no longer supported. Thus the errors.

    Time for a fresh install.

    Raring Ringtail End of Life was reached on January 27, 2014, and as a result of that it stopped receiving security updates, bug fixes or package upgrades from the main Ubuntu repositories.

    I would advise you to backup all you important data and either upgrade your system to 14.04 or make a clean install of 14.04.
    Please mark your thread as solved if you get a satisfactory response.

    Thread closed.

    Welcome. You are trying old and unsupported releases, and in keeping with slickymaster's last post, please upgrade to a supported release and post a new thread with any issues as we no longer provide support for EOL releases here. See here for staff recommendations on EOL releases:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...mendations+eol

    In the releases you are currently using, no, the update command will not work. The repositiories are no longer active.

    Good luck.
