Support for Ubuntu 14.04 has already ended (except for ESM - Extended Security Maintenance for selected server packages)., see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases
I assume that this is the reason that O. Sury has removed the php5.6 package from his repository.

Do you get error messsages for the command
sudo apt update
confirming this?

Hello @Manfred ,

Previously i got this error with update command

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I fixed it using this:
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ondrej-mysql*

There are no packages for Trusty (Ubuntu 14.04) . It is end of life. What you are doing is like looking for updates for Windows XP

There are none. I suggest you either upgrade to Xenial (Ubuntu 16.04) which you can do in one jump OR run a final full update, Remove the server, spin up a Focal server (Ubuntu 20.04) then restore your user data / settings

Can you help with this problem?
