1. Hi,

    I'm setting up a Ubuntu 12.10 Server. Installation went fine, but when trying to "update" it using the "apt-get update" command, I'm getting all kinds of errors.
    How can this be? Is it because it's a 12.10 version and it's no longer supported?

    One of the other 12.10 Servers suggested me to update to 13.10, but this is not good for me, because this is a pretty special system, which I've only just got to work. And I'm following my ToDo to the letter, to avoid any further problems.

    Here's the results of the update command:

    Code:

  3. Other 12.10 servers, same issue...

    Hi Srijan,


    Thanks for your prompt respons ;)

    Looked at the pages. But, it's the update I can't do, and installation of programs/packages e.g. vim-nox, putty, etc.

    Tried to do an update from 2 other 12.10 servers and it's exactly the same!?!? How come it's suddenly impossible?

    Code:
    # apt-get install vim-nox
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package vim-nox is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    
    E: Package 'vim-nox' has no installation candidate
    
    

    Can it be because it's not supported any more? Do they "cut-off"?
    Look here:

  5. Hi,

    Thanks again...

    Checked http://mirrors.digitalocean.com/ubuntu-old/dists/quantal-updates/multiverse/binary-amd64/ but I'm not that sharp at Linux, so I don't know exactly what to do. I guess I'll have to change the path/url's in /etc/apt/sources.list to use this place instead or something like that. Never mind. I'll do it the hard way and go back to 12.04 . The reason I changed to 12.10 was because of a "bug" that appeared in the 12.04.4 update. CUDA5.5 .deb package didn't work after this update. Therefore I had to find a solution. This I used weeks to solve and now 12.10 is not active any more ;)

    Well, back to 12.04 and start again ;)

    Thanks for the help..

    Yes, you need to to add the entries in file /etc/apt/sources.list
