Lucid desktop packages are EOL'd.
You should be planning an upgrade path.
At least there's 5-year lifetimes for the desktop LTS releases.
Actually no. As my script hopefully shows, most of your desktop
packages only receive 18mo support. My impression is that only packages
on the GUI install CD count are marked as Support: 3y and only the
packages on the server install CD are marked as Support: 5y.
Lucid was 10.04, and 3y desktop support; Precise (12.04) came with 5y
Note OP was running 10.04.
Would be interesting to hear what the results of your
script are on
the 12.04 release?
Note my script only reports on installed packages.
You can use dctrl-tools queries to generate other reports.
Work's migrating to Debian because we're sick of Canonical's NIH-happy
rabid beaver model, so I don't really care anymore.
When I wrote my original post on this thread, quacking turned up
references to an in-Ubuntu tool to test this stuff, you might have
luck with that. I didn't keep a bookmark, sorry.
(Actually there was a bzr repo on launchpad for doing a similar job on
8.04, but I forget where it lives.)
