install g++


Hi All,

I'm trying to install g++ on my Ubuntu 9.10 \n \l
I used this command : apt-get install build-essential
and this command : apt-get install g++
and i got the error that follows in both situations and when i used g++ --version to see if g++ installed or not is said that it is not installed :-/
error :

E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

i also tried apt-get update and apt-get install build-essential --fix-missing and apt-get install g++ --fix-missing but none of them worked :-/

any idea?
thanks in advance

actually, you're a bit late. Support for Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic" has run out long ago, and the software repositories for it aren't present any longer.
Are you sure you don't like to upgrade to a more recent version? For instance, 10.04 "Lucid" would be an LTS which is supported until spring of 2013.

You may be lucky and find the required package as a .deb file for download somewhere, so that you can install it manually.
However, I'd favor a system upgrade from scratch - and then keep it up to date while it is still being supported. :-)

Welcome to LQ.

Your original /etc/apt/sources.list points to current Ubuntu links.

Ubuntu 9.10 was moved to "The Ubuntu museum" / "The old archive"
long time ago, and stays there.
The original links can never be used again.

I recommend you to first back up your personal data, then download an ISO image of a recent distro like Ubuntu 12.04 (or why not try Mint?), burn it to a CD, and finally wipe your HDD and reinstall your system from that CD. Then restore your personal files.

Of course it did. It's out of date.

no doubt you're right.

However, I don't understand why the Ubuntu guys do that. If they still keep the original lists under a "special" URL ... I mean, wouldn't it make more sense to leave them where they always were, and just not update them any more? Or even better, supply one final update of update-manager that reminds the user of the outdated system every time it boots?
That way, users who deliberately keep an old system alive can at least install additional packages that match their old system.

I was annoyed of that behavior, too, when "Jaunty" ran out. Each time I booted my old Jaunty box, update-manager popped up and told me "Your system is up to date". That was nonsense, of course, but update-manager couldn't get any more recent repos, so it thought everything was fine. Only when I tried to install some package, I ran into the same trouble as sallyde.

Well, it's the same for Debian, Fedora :
Old Deb http://www.debian.org/distrib/archive > http://archive.debian.net/
Old Fedora http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pu.../fedora/linux/

One difference from a supported version is :
It's a fixed mirror, no more mirror lists.
