    Err http://archive.ubuntu.com lucid/main Packages 404 Not Found

    Getting a whole heap of 404 errors when I run

    # apt-get update

    e.g.

    Err http://security.ubuntu.com lucid-security/restricted Packages
    404 Not Found
    Err http://security.ubuntu.com lucid-security/universe Packages
    404 Not Found

    Is this a temporary problem and I can expect the package repository to be available and online again soon? I tried running apt-get update from another box that uses the same configuration and had no problem.

    Wondering if this could be related to the fact that I've just installed the unattended-upgrades package?

    Nevermind. It was a DNS issue which I've resolved.

    I forget now. The problem was basically a problem with my DNS server. It wasn't setup to forward queries properly, so when it was queried for "archive.ubuntu.com" it didn't forward the query, rather it matched it to the wild-card DNS record in my DNS zone and then returned the IP address of one of my servers.
