On July 31st 2017, Ubuntu released Ubuntu Security Notice 3373-1 ( https://usn.ubuntu.com/usn/usn-3373-1/) related to Apache 2.2 on Ubuntu 12.04. I thought it was nice of them to release a security update for 12.04, which is no longer officially supported. The new package version should be Apache2 2.2.22-1ubuntu1.12.

However, when doing an apt-get update && apt-get upgrade, no new version of Apache is available on 12.04. The USN refers to this launchpad package page, but it doesn't exist. According to the apache2 source package in Precise on launchpad, the latest version is 2.2.22-1ubuntu1.11, not .12.

Does anybody know where that package has gone?

  • The information in this USN is somehow misleading. But I doubt that askubuntu is the right place for this question. – pLumo Aug 11 '17 at 8:22
  • Why is the information in the USN misleading? And why do you believe this is not the right place to ask this question? – Ferry Boender Aug 11 '17 at 10:16
  • It's quite ridiculous that this question is marked as off-topic because "This question is specific to an end of life Ubuntu release. " It's almost as if the question hasn't even been read. You can do better than this, AskUbuntu. – Ferry Boender Aug 14 '17 at 12:30
  • Like I said, this is just not the right place to ask for that kind of support. Better to place your question in a specialized mailing list – pLumo Aug 17 '17 at 6:15
