I am trying to follow the instructions here https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/monitoring/how-to/upgrade-legacy-agent/ to “Update Droplet to Monitoring”.

sudo apt-get purge do-agent
curl -sSL https://repos.insights.digitalocean.com/install.sh | sudo bash

My droplet is using “Ubuntu MEAN on 14.04”

I am getting the following output

> sudo apt-get purge do-agent

I tried running sudo apt-get update but it still can’t find the do-agent package. Any idea what could be causing these errors?

I think that this is because Ubuntu 14 is no longer being supported by Ubuntu, so you would start seeing a lot of other things not working. I would just recommend migrating to Ubuntu 18 or 19 to make sure that you’ve got all the latest security patches and also packages available.

  • I’m getting these errors with “Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS”
    and the 2016 LTS should still be supported (in 2019):

    # apt-get update
