Try updating your sources.list with on each line;

deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/

This is needed now that 0710 has passed into un-supported mode.

All the best

Here is more information about my case:

I'm using the ASU_P2-M2A690G (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/ASUS_P2-M2A690G) as a MD, and I'm trying to update it from my core using ssh. So, when i type apt-get update its show me that couldn't find the source.

thanks

Use a text editor to edit the sources files with the new URL....

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
(type your linuxmce password)
Now edit all the instances of archive.ubuntu.com to say old-releases.ubuntu.com
Hit CTRL-X and say yes to save changes

Now run:

sudo apt-get update

etc

Anyone have any success with this?  It looks like the i386 packages are available but not the AMD64.  Can I use the both i386 and AMD64 packages?  If so, how do I point apt-get to use the i386 architecture?

===============================================================================================
sudo apt-get update gives me this:

Don't worry, that is normal, your "update" worked fine.

You don't specify which architecture to use, apt-get does that automatically, there is no way to control or override that as it is impossible to install one architecture package on a different architecture system.

You should not be using AMD64 anyway, it is not stable enough. Only use i386, there is almost performance difference.

Hi,

I was running 810 normally, but after type sudo apt-get update & apt-get upgrade my install stop on "DCE Router login:" screen, the prompt screen... any suggestions to solve this?
To start my system now, I need log in DCE Router, type startx, and then, after X up, open other terminal and run manually the commands to start my screen orbiter.
After this everything works fine...but I would like the system with autostart..

thanks
djonny
