    Install Package on Old Ubuntu Distro (10.04 )

    Dear All,

    I have an old Ubuntu distro (10.04) on one machine which I had used in 2009 - 10. I want to install mysql-server on that machine but "sudo apt-get install" doesnt work as this distribution is not supported.

    What do I do?

    Thanks.
    Harsh.

    Ubuntu distro (10.04) is an LTS release with support until April 2013. I'm running it right now, and received security updates today

    Furthermore, the corresponding server edition will be supported until April 2015. But it is only for server specific software. See the following thread
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1954702

    So I think you have some other problem. Have you tried to run the following commands (and watch for error messages) before running the install command?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    It gives Err : Server_Name PackageName 404 Not found.

    Am I using the wrong server? I went to synaptic package manager and selected various servers including the main server and server for India but no luck.

    Would it be an alternative for you to wipe the current OS and install a new one, for example Ubuntu server? Then you should have no issues with the packages.
