    apt install fail due to wrong resource url

    Hello, I was using apt to install aria2. The terminal showed the error:
    HTML Code:
    Wrong :1 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu disco/universe amd64 aria2 amd64 1.34.0-3 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.88.142 80]
    E: Cannot Download http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/a/aria2/aria2_1.34.0-3_amd64.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.88.142 80]
    I tried using a browser to connect that url. The browser could access http://archive.ubuntu.com. But there was no such file 'aria2_1.34.0-3_amd64.deb' as in the error message. The closet one was 'aria2_1.34.0-4_amd64.deb'.

    Is it an error of apt that gave a wrong resource url?
    If I want to install it manually, what do I need to do other than to download deb file and to run dkpg -i <deb>?

    The OS version was lubuntu 19.04. Thanks for any help.

    wlsdx; Ouch -

    I be that harbinger of ill news:
    Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) was the 30th release of Ubuntu, support ended January 2020. see !eol and
    https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ub...ry/005263.html
    the repository no longer exists.
    You are strongly urged to upgrade to a current release.
    Code:
    sysop@2004x-c:~$ apt list aria2
    Listing... Done
    aria2/focal,focal 1.35.0-1build1 amd64
    sysop@2004x-c:~$
    all good things must end
    THE current(cy) in Documentation:

    Happy ubuntu'n !

    It's like looking for Windows updates for Windows 2000. They don't exist.
