Today updated Ubuntu from 18.10 to 19.04 and found that gcc-4.8 and related packages were removed. But I need them to build soft for my work. How could I recover them and their dependencies?

  • An "extra non-PIE" gcc, g++ -4.8.4 is available for all Ubuntu versions, 14.04 .. 19.** : drive.google.com/drive/folders/… ... Provides /usr/local/bin/{gcc48, g++48}. ... Or you can add like deb [URL] bionic universe main to /etc/apt/sources.list ... to install the 18.04 g++-4.8 – Knud Larsen Apr 23 at 10:28

    @KnudLarsen No, no, no, and no, and no! I will not grab random binaries from a random cloud. Also, I don't feel OK at all mixing different distro releases, i.e. if you're on 19.04=disco, it's better to not mix that with "bionic" packages. – Johan Boulé Jul 10 at 14:00
