Check this site.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

14.04 was EOL July 2015. No more support. Need to install a supported release. Best to do a new clean install of 16.04.

michael (yellupcm-gmail) said : #2

correction

14.10 was EOL July 2015.

I'd wipe Utopic off and do a clean install of Xenial.

What you are trying to do is like running Windows update on Windows 98. There aren't any.

@Gary: you followed part of this procedure, but you skipped the most important step which is step ONE....

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PackageManagerTroubleshootingProcedure

You first need to install a supported version of Ubuntu BEFORE following the rest of the procedure.

All steps are in there for a reason.

Can you help with this problem?
