The bug reporter is asking for assistance with an unsupported upgrade path.

To upgrade from 5.04 to later releases, you need to upgrade successively through 5.10, 6.06, 6.10, 7.04, and finally 7.10. This may take a while ... (Upgrading to 8.04 would be quicker since you can upgrade from 6.06 to 8.04 directly.) Note that 5.10, 6.10, and 7.04 reside on http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ nowadays and /etc/apt/sources.list would need to be written accordingly. If you feel up to tackling this, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes has much of the necessary information.

A fresh installation may be easier, and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation has advice on a number of methods of installing Ubuntu without a CD.

Can you help with this problem?
