Apt-Get problem on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn 7.04

Hello. At home i have a pc that acts as a mail server and has GNU/Linux Ubuntu Fesity Fawn 7.04 which was installed on mid 2007.
Today i decided to install mysql on it and, as i always do, tryed use apt-get to do the job.

The problem i came across that i get 404 Not Found from every address apt-get tries to download the .deb files.
I also tryed to manually download the .deb files from http://packages.ubuntu.com but my distribution doesn't appear on the list.

By all this i guess my distribution is no longer supported, right?.
So, which Ubuntu distribution should i download packages from (in this case, MySQL server) so i could install them on Fesity Fawn?.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I see this is an older topic, but I have found some information which will resolve your issue.
Any version prior to 7.10 is EOL (End of Life) meaning it is no longer supported.
You will need to do a multi-step upgrade which is defined here:

Once you've gotten Gusty, you should be able to go to Hardy, Ibex, and all the way to Jaunty.
Or you could just backup important software and install a fresh 9.04.
Either way hope this helps... :)
