I'm using Linux Mint 13 (Nadia), which is based on Ubuntu 12.04 (Quantal), which went out of support since May 2014. I'm getting 404's when I try to update or install any package. After googling I found this question
However, this was asked 2 years ago, and the solution does not work. This is my sources.list file.
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ nadia main upstream import deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal main restricted universe multiverse deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-updates main restricted universe multiverse deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-security main restricted universe multiverse deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ quantal partner #deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ quantal free non-free #deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu quantal-getdeb apps #deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu quantal-getdeb games deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/java/ubuntu precise main deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/java/ubuntu precise main
After visiting archive.ubuntu.com I've noticed that the quantal folder isn't even there.
I realize that Linux Mint Nadia is now unsupported, but unsupported AFAIK means that it doesn't get any security updates, not the complete removal of the online repositories, right? Is there another server I can use for apt?
I'm trying to avoid upgrading because I really do not want to break anything. Past experience tells me that upgrades are nightmares. (I realize I should've stuck to the LTS version but I needed something slightly newer at the time)
