Debian 5.0 (lenny) apt sources fail?
- Upgrade to
- Stay with
lenny, remove the Debian FTP servers from
sources.listand keep the packages as they are. There will be no security updates.
- Pin (
man apt_preferences) necessary packages down to
lennyand perform a partial upgrade, or pin all packages down to
lennyand perform upgrades as needed. Leaves you with a partial system, and you are likely to get all kinds of errors, but might be necessary if neither upgrade nor keep-as-is are options.
You can use the following sources until you upgrade your system:
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ lenny contrib main non-free
archive.debian.org has the package repositories of all EOLd debian releases

For the past few days, I couldn't update our apt-sources on Debian 5.0 (lenny). I get the following errors.
W: Failed to fetch http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/lenny/main/binary-amd64/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 18.104.22.168 80] W: Failed to fetch http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/lenny/contrib/binary-amd64/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 22.214.171.124 80] W: Failed to fetch http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/lenny/non-free/binary-amd64/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 126.96.36.199 80] W: Failed to fetch http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/lenny/main/source/Sources 404 Not Found [IP: 188.8.131.52 80] W: Failed to fetch http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/lenny/contrib/source/Sources 404 Not Found [IP: 184.108.40.206 80] W: Failed to fetch http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/lenny/non-free/source/Sources 404 Not Found [IP: 220.127.116.11 80]
How do I fix this problem?
My current sources are:
# Debian Lenny deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ lenny main non-free contrib deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ lenny main non-free contrib # Debian Lenny Non-US deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US lenny/non-US main contrib non-free deb-src http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US lenny/non-US main contrib non-free # Debian Lenny Security deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib non-free
René Höhle about 10 yearsCan you post your entrys in your /etc/apt/sources.list?
trnc about 10 yearsplease see edit!
René Höhle about 10 yearsYes ;) thx but i think the Answer from @thiton is the problem.
adamo about 10 yearsExactly! Time to upgrade :)
trnc about 10 yearsi can't upgrade atm, because there's a raid driver which is incompatible to squeeze...
thiton about 10 years@Tronic: Then you'll have to live without a security team, which can be OK for backend servers. You can drop the updating cron job now and remove most lines from sources.list. If the maintainers of
squeezeare not aware of the incompatible RAID driver, file a bug report.
trnc about 10 yearsi just need to install postfix... so should i just use the proper .deb package for installation?
thiton about 10 years@Tronic: Use pinning (
man apt_preferences) to pin the packages you need from lenny, or to pin the whole system to lenny and install postfix selectively from squeeze. It would be unwise to keep a huge and internet-facing package like postfix without security support.
