Default where can I get feisty packages from?

Hullo there.

When I do a sudo apt-get update I get a bunch of these (or similar):

Err http://security.ubuntu.com feisty-security/main Packages
404 Not Found
Err http://security.ubuntu.com feisty-security/restricted Packages
404 Not Found

-- followed by a bunch of these:

Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/feisty-security/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz 404 Not Found
Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/feisty-security/restricted/binary-i386/Packages.gz 404 Not Found

... followed finally by this:

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Nothing was actually fetched.

What triggered this was a desire to install php5-gd, but an attempt to
do that results in similar messages, because it tries to get the
packages from security.ubuntu.com.

I've been to security.ubuntu.com, and it appears that the
feisty-security distribution directory is gone.

Are there alternatives?

Regards, K.

PS: The particular package I want may be on the feisty CD, but I'd still
like to know about online alternatives...
