Supposedly I have an outdated Linux Mint edition whose corresponding Ubuntu version has been discontinued i.e. it has reached its end-of-life. How will I download software for the same outdated Mint?
I am asking this question specifically because I've used an outdated Ubuntu earlier and it needed a change of repositories reference, something like modifying source.list from 'archive.ubuntu.com' to 'old-release.ubuntu.com'.
Do Mint have something of their own servers where the old/outdated softwares are reserved? or, A similar procedure is needed?
I want to use an old machine of mine for the very basic purpose of eg. managing data on disk (movies, music, videos), PDF and other document reading, some very basic browsing (although it will be prone to security breaches & attacks, I understand) i.e. security patches are of least concern for me but software might be required further.
PS : I am asking this because I don't often update my system and doesn't know that at what point of time (few years later or so) I would just require a piece of software without complete updation of OS.
