    Stranded In China

    Hey yall.

    I'm in china, first.
    got a laptop runing 13.04 ubuntu.
    I want to upgrade it obviously.
    I cant connect to the server for the packages because of the chinese firewall.

    running "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" results in

    "Some index files have failed to download" and specifically

    "404 not found http://extras.ubuntu.com raring/main amd64 Packages
    Et.al.

    I know i need a vpn, but I can't get the ovpn packages to break the firewall because of the firewall.

    My question is, are hese packages failing because of the chinese firewall or because I can't download them anymore?

    Any suggestions?

    13.04 is End Of Life. You need to do a fresh install.
