I have various machines running Ubuntu & all but one have been successfully upgraded to the LTS 8.04 version. I have one machine which has missed the upgrade window (for a good reason). The Gutsy repositories have been taken down now (seems April 18th was the deletion day). The upgrade now doesn't take place on this machine due to a missing ubuntu-desktop / kubuntu-desktop.
Is there a repository left over somewhere, that I can use to re-instate the missing package with an up-to-date one? Alternatively, will an install-from-CD (8.04) retain the configuration?
