missing raring-updates

My Linux Mint 15 install on VirtualBox was working great up until about two days ago, when the updater started throwing a ton of errors and refuses to progress with any apt-get update, apt-get install, or apt-get upgrade.

They are 404 errors on the site, under the /ubuntu/dists/raring-updates folder. I looked at it, it doesn’t exist. Here’s a direct link, which shows there is no raring-updates.

Where has raring-updates gone and what can I do to fix this?

Support for Ubuntu 13.04 officially ended on January 27, 2014.

Wikpedia entry on Raring Ringtail. Presumably, you would want to update to a supported version… The current version of Linux Mint is 17.

On AskUbuntu there is this question which may of help

The repositories for EOL Ubuntu releases are archived, so was moved to (raring-updates is here) – basically all you should need to do is replace & in the software sources (/etc/apt/sources.list) with, then run sudo apt-get update.

Try this version of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list :

deb olivia main upstream import 

deb  raring main restricted universe multiverse
deb raring-updates main restricted universe multiverse

deb raring-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb raring partner
