Please see the attached faq for more info. As this system was originally certified with a pre-install version of 12.04 and the fact that 12.04 reached End of Life last year, it is no longer supported. I suggest you try installing at least 16.04.4 LTS, or more preferably, 18.04 LTS that was just released in April and will be supported with updates until 2023.
FAQ #2962: “Unable to install older release”.

Can you help with this problem?
