Ubuntu: old releases repositories

If your Ubuntu is too old and aptitude stopped working, showing 404 not found.

Add this to /etc/apt/sources.list, changing the CODENAME to your Ubuntu version.


## EOL upgrade sources.list
# Required
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ CODENAME main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ CODENAME-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ CODENAME-security main restricted universe multiverse

# Optional
#deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ CODENAME-backports main restricted universe multiverse

That’s enough.
