Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu if you are uncertain if they are bugs. For help on reporting bugs, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs#When%20not%20to%20file%20a%20bug. There is also a vibrant support community available at http://askubuntu.com and you might consider asking your question there.

Ubuntu Release 9.04 has gone End of Live and is no more supported.
If you want to receive updates you have to upgrade to a supported release, or perfom a new installation of a current one.
See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for details.
To upgrade an EOL version you have to use special procedures, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades

Can you help with this problem?
