E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.







any ideas how to fix this and move on to 10.04 and so on from there?

Sorry for such a bad answer, but upgrading for more than 2 releases is definitely not a good idea.

You should backup your data and make a clean install.

It's only one upgrade from 8.04 to 10.04.
I do agree that backing the files up and doing a fresh install is the best way.
Moving past 10.04 and onto 12.04 will keep you up to date and supported longer.

But if backing up and reinstalling is not an option, look over this.

These are the instructions for upgrading Ubuntu server to the next LTS release

https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/installing-upgrading.html

Ubuntu 8.04 server had 5 years support. That has now ended and that is why you are getting those error messages but you can upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04 server. It also has 5 years support so it is still supported (I work out it is 18 months). If you want you can then move on to 12.04 server, also with 5 years support (18 months used up). After that there is 14.04 server with 5 years support (out near the end of April 2014)

When we are using an LTS release we can upgrade to the next LTS release. When we are using an Interim (now called standard releases) we can only upgrade to the next version that was released. We cannot by-pass interim releases.

Regards.
