This question already has an answer here:
I re-installed ubuntu 10.10 a few days ago after It messed up trying to upgrade to 11.04. I want to ultimately get it to 11.10, but now it won't even attempt an upgrade and I get this error message:
W: Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/maverick-updates/universe/binary-i386/Packages.gz 404 Not Found [IP: 126.96.36.199 80] W: Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/maverick-updates/multiverse/binary-i386/Packages.gz 404 Not Found [IP: 188.8.131.52 80] E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
I have no idea what I should do next. I don't have a blank disc or a burner to download 11.10 manually. Since I'm new, I can't post the entire error code since there are so many hyperlinks.
