View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't update or upgrade via pkg mgr

August 13th, 2009, 02:51 AM
When I try to install updates I get a bunch of these:

W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/e/e2fsprogs/e2fslibs_1.39-1ubuntu0.1_i386.deb
404 Not Found

W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/e/e2fsprogs/e2fsprogs_1.39-1ubuntu0.1_i386.deb
404 Not Found

This has been going on for over six months on Edgy. I'd like to upgrade to 8.0x but can't because of the same. Note: Don't know if this has anything to do with it but - one thing I did notice, upon boot, was that fsck failed, but still booted into x. If I can get this working, can I still get updates for Edgy, or do I have to upgrade to a later version?

Edgy is no longer supported, which also means the Edgy repositories don't exist at their original location either.

You can either do a clean install of a later release (Hardy or later), try a step-by-step EOL (End of Life) upgrade (not recommended) or stay with Edgy and use the archived repositories.

Here are a few links:
EOLUpgrades (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades)

8.04/installation-guide/i386/index.html (https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/installation-guide/i386/index.html)



If you want to stick with Edgy, search for "old-releases" in the forums on how to change your repositories or see how to change the repositories to "old-releases" in the EOL link.
