    It's not polite to bump a thread more than once a day.

    Use old-releases.ubuntu.com.

    As you will need to download all the upgraded packages anyway why don't you just download the version you want to install.

    Here are the instructions; however, if you are lazy, you aren't going to like it. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades

    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.

    Preforming an EOL upgrade may be more difficult and time consumming than a clean installation .
