I have used

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

and the like in my sources.list. I want to try an upgrade but not sure how to fix my sources.list file. This is my backup, but it gives me a load of 404 and no upgrade option. Any way to fix?

– As in: what sources.list file to use for an upgrade from 12.10?

# deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 12.10 _Quantal Quetzal_ - Release i386 (20121017.2)]/ quantal main restricted

# See http://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes for how to upgrade to
# newer versions of the distribution.

For upgrading, you only need to have these lines in your sources.list:

deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-updates main restricted universe multiverse

Everything else, including the Canonical repository and the Extras repository can be (and will be, by the upgrade tool) disabled.

In the future, keep sources that you added in individual .list files in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ directory.

  • Thanks. I still have problem though, but as it differ somewhat I post a new Q. – user129107 Sep 1 '14 at 19:03
