Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! New questions about end-of-life Ubuntu releases are considered off-topic as per the FAQ. These old releases are unsupported and their use is not recommended. They don't even get updates for newly discovered security vulnerabilities, which makes using them risky. If you install or upgrade to a supported release and this question still applies, please flag and/or comment to request it be reopened. – Eric Carvalho Jul 21 '13 at 17:57
