When I run apt-get install mysql-server I get the following error:

Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/m/mysql-dfsg-5.1/mysql-server_5.1.41-3ubuntu12.6_all.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.177 80] E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

This is a rather old server, so I'm thinking maybe something is out of date? However, I have no idea how to fix it. I'd appreciate any help I could get!

Have you tried running apt-get update as the helpful error message suggested? –  Ladadadada Mar 5 '12 at 20:15
    
@Ladadadada - Thanks! That fixed it. Feel free to submit an answer and I'll accept it. I probably should have tried that first, but I got it stuck in my head that the repositories were no longer at that address and an update wouldn't work any better.. –  Mike Christensen Mar 5 '12 at 20:19

It's literally spelled out in the error message. –  Publiccert Mar 5 '12 at 20:44
