Piney; Hi !

Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) end-of-life reached on April 10, 2012 (http://fridge.ubuntu.com/2012/04/10/ubuntu-10-10-maverick-meerkat-end-of-life-reached-on-april-10-2012/)

Apr 10, 2012 This note is just to confirm that the support period for Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) formally ends on April 10, 2012 and Ubuntu Security ...

Do you absolutely gotta install this no-longer supported version ?

just try'n to help

10.10 is out of support and the software repositories are closed.

Even if you upgrade to 11.04 what then, upgrading one by one to the latest? So many upgrades in a row in most cases will create some issues.

Don't be lazy and do a clean install of 12.04 which is LTS and will be supported until 2017. :)

Its expired. I had to do a new clean install on my 10.10. I run fallback or gnome-panel to give me the gnome2 look like 10.10 was and think performance on my 6 year old system is slightly better with 12.04.

Versions and release & support until dates:

Old Releases past support
