Support for Ubuntu 10.04 has ended more than a year ago. The repositories for downloading software have been removed.

The supported Ubuntu releases are those below the heading "current" on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

I suggest you install Xenial (Ubuntu 16.04) which is LTS and supported til April 2021.

16.04 does not contain - make

Vineet (vineetb) said : #4

my old code needs - make

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #5

make is one of the most important tools for compiling, linking and installing programs. Of course it is available on all Ubuntu releases. See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/make-dfsg

If you want to compile programs, you should install the "build-essential" package, which will care for downloading and installing core packages needed for compiling (e.g. gcc and g++ compilers and also the make utility).

you can install make in the latest versions. Just install the build-essential package and you will get it

I get following output on 16.04

You are using version 4.1 of make.
Android can only be built by versions 3.81 and 3.82.

We cannot support EOL releases

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #9

That is quite a weakness of an application if it cannot be build with up-to-date versions of the tools.

As a workaround you could try Ubuntu 14.04, its make version is 3.81-8.2ubuntu3

Vineet (vineetb) said : #10

How can I install make3.81 on 16.04?

Best Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #11

There is no supported way to install make 3.81 on Ubuntu 16.04

If you need a system with make 3.81 or 3.82, I recommend (as already written before) to install an Ubuntu 14.04 system.
