Support for 11.04 stopped in 2012. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ubuntu_releases#Table_of_versions

So you can't update 11.04 anymore via online sources

So is there any way that I can do that upgrade from other resources rather than online ones ? what is the other options to upgrade Ubuntu from 11.4 ?

I think you can download Ubuntu 11.10, put it on CD, and use that to upgrade 11.04 to 11.10

An upgrade is risky, and 11.10 is only supported for one month more, after which you need to upgrade again.

I recommend a fresh install of 12.04.2 or 12.10.
