LXDE apt-get fails 404 Error

Hi, 

 

I am using the LXDE image from the terasic website. When I do apt-get update, it fails with 404 errors. It is not a connectivity issue (I can connect to the internet). I believe it to be a problem in the /etc/apt/sources.list file, which currently contains: 

 

 

deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ quantal main universe 

deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ quantal main universe  

 

 

The error I get is: 

 

 

Err http://ports.ubuntu.com quantal/main Sources 404 Not Found 

Err http://ports.ubuntu.com quantal/universe 404 Not Found 

Err http://ports.ubuntu.com quantal/main armhf Packages 404 Not Found 

etc... 

 

 

Is there a way to fix this so that apt-get actually functions? 

 

 

Thanks, 

Mike

vi /etc/apt/sources.list 

 

Change contents to:-

deb-src http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal main universe

After some further digging around I managed to fix this problem properly:- 

 

Delete all lists of downloaded packages:- 

 

cd /var/lib/apt/lists rm * 

 

Update package lists:- 

apt-get update 

 

Upgrade:- 

apt-get upgrade 

Probably libssl1.0.0 will be upgraded from 1.0.1c-3ubuntu2.5~linaro1 to 1.0.1c-3ubuntu2.5~linaro2 

 

Optional, Install SSH & change passwd: 

 

apt-get install openssh-server passwd
