    It looks like this is the only referenece to Jaunty.

    Code:
    ## Uncomment the following two lines to add software from the 'backports'
    ## repository.
    ## N.B. software from this repository may not have been tested as
    ## extensively as that contained in the main release, although it includes
    ## newer versions of some applications which may provide useful features.
    ## Also, please note that software in backports WILL NOT receive any review
    ## or updates from the Ubuntu security team.
    deb http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ jaunty-backports main restricted universe multiverse
    # deb-src http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ jaunty-backports main restricted universe multiverse
    Delete or comment out that line.
    sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.backup
    gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

    Re: errors caused by bad/old packages, HELP!!

    Hi ,
    first of all do as @oldfred said.
    Then , I think apt reads from /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ also.. so delete some lines are reference to natty (Ubuntu 11.04)
    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ferramroberto-*
    sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/natty-partner*
    Then do again
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    and see if errors occurs . If not , then I think your problem solved.
    Thanks
