    Replace Ubuntu 19.10 with 18.04 - need gcc-mipsel-linux-gnu package

    Good afternoon. I am trying to install the package gcc-mipsel-linux-gnu for ubuntu 19.10, distribution eoan.
    I have already checked the ubuntu packages and unfortunately I can't find anything.
    Can i find another way to have this package?
    I was thinking to remove this ubuntu version and install the 19.04 but I am not confindent in my abilities.
    I need to have that package for a school project.

    Is there something else i can do?
    Thanks for the attention given.

    It seems that the package you are looking for is currently only available for 16.04, 18.04 and 19.04. See: https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?k...ll&section=all

    Don't do that. 19.04 has passed end-of-life and is now unsupported. If the repositories for 19.04 are still open, they will soon close. If you really need to install a release of Ubuntu older than 19.10 in order to be able to get gcc-mipsel-linux-gnu, then the best choice would be 18.04.

    A word of explanation. The even numbered releases, released in April, are long-term support (LTS), supported for several years. Currently these are 16.04 and 18.04, and they will be joined by 20.04 when this is released this coming April. 16.04 has only about a year of support left, hence 18.04 would be a better choice. All others, including 19.04 and 19.10, are interim releases supported for only nine months. 19.10 will become end of life in July this year.

    If you need help replacing 19.10 with 18.04, post back with some more details of what you are not confident about, and I am sure someone can help you. If this is the path you want to take, I'll change the thread title for you so that you don't have to open another thread.

    Yes, if someone can help me through this process and install the 18.04 version of ubuntu that would be great.
    Thank you.

    So is it possible to replace this ubuntu version with the 18.04, without doing all the process?

    let's see more info about your hardware and exactly what is currently installed
    The output of command
    Code:
    lsb_release -dc && echo "Desktop:	$DESKTOP_SESSION" && uname -mrn
    will tell us quite a lot about your OS, and output from
    Code:
    inxi -Fxz
    will tell us about your hardware.
    Finally output of
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    will give us info about the partitioning on the machine.

    Please use Code-Tags for terminal output as it makes that output much more easily read and understood, formatting the text as seen in terminal, not as plain text when you copy and paste. See my signature below for a How-to

    First command from Post #5 was....
    Code:
    lsb_release -dc && echo "Desktop:$DESKTOP_SESSION" && uname -mrn
    Try it again.

    I was wondering, if it's possible to keep the same grub I have, keep the partition made, delete ubuntu and then replace ubuntu 19.10 with 18.94 on the free partition. Is it doable?
