apt-get install gitosis --fix-missing on my Linode still leads to a 404

(Failed to fetch http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/gitosis/gitosis_0.2+20080825-2_all.deb  404 Not Found [IP: 130.89.148.12 80]
)

. The correct file location seems to be http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/gitosis/gitosis_0.2+20090917-11_all.deb

Is there any way I can install this without apt-get, or point apt-get in the right direction somehow?

Several other packages on my Debian Linode also point to 404, both from command line and virtualmin.

EDIT: Machine details Debian 5.0 64bit (Latest 2.6 (2.6.39.1-x86_64-linode19))

Try an apt-get update before and see if this fixes the problem. –  Sven Apr 10 '12 at 16:46
    
That leads to several 404s as well –  stef Apr 10 '12 at 16:48

Then post your sources.list. –  Zoredache Apr 10 '12 at 16:51
    
How old is this machine? Has the release passed into the great void of unsupported legacy? If not you need to spend a few minutes and clean up your apt sources - an apt-get update shouldn't be producing 404 errors for a current, supported release... –  voretaq7 Apr 10 '12 at 16:51

As of March 24, Debian 5.0 (Lenny) has moved into archive.debian.org. Most Debian mirrors don't carry Lenny any more, and worse, Debian no longer provides security patches for it. –  Steven Monday Apr 10 '12 at 17:16

If you're still set on gitosis. This will make you profitable. –  NcA Apr 10 '12 at 19:10

Since gitosis is no longer updated and is being deprecated, I suggest installing gitolite right away. (It's also better at the job.)

apt-get install gitolite tells me E: Couldn't find package gitolite –  stef Apr 10 '12 at 17:00
    
Probably not in the repo, clone the git repo and install it that way would the best –  Snowflow Apr 10 '12 at 17:02
    
No. The best way would be to install fpm and build a .deb file, then install that. –  Tom O'Connor Apr 10 '12 at 17:17
    
Smart, didn't know of that way. Much better. –  Snowflow Apr 11 '12 at 8:09
