    Question Utopic update fail (missing sources)

    Dear forum,

    When trying to update (either through the update manager or through the terminal), ubuntu cannot find some sources. I have run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update > ~/error.txt
    and the outcome is as follows (the first part of each sentence means "unable to fetch"):
    Code:

    Any ideas about what is going on and how I can solve the issue? I am not an expert, please bear with my basic knowledge of Ubuntu.
    Thanks!
    Thanks for your patience.

    Being end of life, 14.10 isn't likely to have updates for you.

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2288005

    I'd recommend getting to a supported release. If you are determined to stay on 14.10 you need to find out whether the repositories have been moved to old-releases yet, in which case that would be the cause of the above error.

    Thanks howefield.
    I am not determined to stay on 14.10. I see that the suggested path forward would take me to another non-LTS version of Ubuntu, and then yet to another one. Is there a way to revert to 14.04 instead? Or maybe I should open a new thread on this? Thank you.
    Thanks for your patience.

    Only a clean install of 14.04.x would get you to the current LTS.

    However once there, you have the ability of to upgrade directly to the next LTS release which will be 16.04 or stay with 14.04 for the remainder of its life (till 2019).

    Another option is installing 15.10 which is released next week and then to the next LTS 16.04 next April, obviously a more onerous path than LTS to LTS.

    Thank you, howefield.
    I will back up my files and make a clean install of 14.04, then. In the long run, It seems the safest way to proceed.
    Thank you for your advice.
    Thanks for your patience.
