When I try to update using the Update manager, I get the following error message:

I know that Maverick is an old and unsupported release but I cannot upgrade to a new release because Efika MX doesn't support them. I tried to replace "port.ubuntu.com" with "old-releases.ubuntu.com" (as some websites recommended) but it doesn't work either.

What configuration should I change to get updates working properly?
