Default Problem with receiving updates and software

I have Ubuntu 6.10 -
The system has been working fine until recently, when I went to receive
my updates, I received and error message saying "page not found". Also
the same message when trying to upgrade to 7.0, this also happens when
using the "add/remove" software feature under Applications.
How can these problems be resolved?
My e-mail address is: behnkej@bellsouth.net
Thank You for a quick response,

Jim Behnke

This would likely be because 6.10 reached end of life in April 2008.
This also means that 6.10 does not receive security updates anymore.
See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

It is therefore strongly recommended to upgrade to a newer version. Or
rather, since 6.10 is already so old, you are probably better off
installing 8.04 LTS.

Upgrading to 7.04 (the only upgrade path that is available for 6.10)
would help you little, since 7.04 will reach end of life in October. You
would then have to upgrade to 7.10 right away.

That's why I recommend to install 8.04 LTS right away. You seem not to
be interested in installing/upgrading a lot, therefore an LTS release is
probably the best choice for you. LTS means "Long-term Support", and the
desktop version of 8.04 will have support until April 2011 (server
version even longer).

> How can these problems be resolved?

Here are the release notes and installation instructions. Read and
follow them:
http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/804
https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/installation-guide/i386/index.html

Here is additional community documentation for installing (special cases
and such): https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation

If you absolutely do want to upgrade your installation rather than
install 8.04, see this:
