    Ubuntu 16.10 Update problem (some repository yakkety release does not have Release )

    I try to update a system (apt-get update), but I got some errors.

    Concretely (main error):
    Code:
    E:The repository 'http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu yakkety Release' does  not have a Release file., W:Updating from such a repository can't be  done securely, and is therefore disabled by default., W:See  apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration  details., E:The repository 'http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu  yakkety-updates Release' does not have a Release file., W:Updating from  such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by  default., W:See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user  configuration details., E:The repository  'http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu yakkety-security Release' does not  have a Release file.
    My Ubuntu version:
    Description: Ubuntu 16.10
    Codename: yakkety

    I tried a lot of solutions found in different threads and different sources, such as :
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get update

    I disabled all PPA's from "Other software" of "Software and Updates" (just in case..).

    And also, I commented a pair of lines of sources.list file (just to try):
    ####deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu yakkety-backports main universe restricted multiverse
    ####deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu yakkety partner

    ... but the main error remains (see "main error" on top) ...

    When I try to : sudo apt-get update

    I got this :
    Code:
    ...
    Ign:79 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu yakkety-security/universe amd64 Packages
    Ign:80 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu yakkety-security/universe i386 Packages

    Re: Ubuntu 16.10 Update problem (some repository yakkety release does not have Releas

    Ubuntu has long passed end of life and the repositories have been moved to the old-releases archive.

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades

    Best to upgrade to a supported release. 16.04 is supported until April 2021.

    Re: Ubuntu 16.10 Update problem (some repository yakkety release does not have Releas

    As 17.04 has reached end of life too, I suggest you don't try to upgrade. Get a fresh install of 16.04 (yes, that's kind of downgrading) or 17.10.
