I have a droplet with Ubuntu 14.04.5 x64. When I run the command:

apt-get update

I get this error (I will copy paste the last few rows of the terminal):

My-server:~# apt-get update

Hello,

I believe that Ubuntu 14 would no longer be supported. So you would start seeing more and more packages failing to install as normal. I would recommend upgrading to Ubuntu 18 or 19 so that way you would get the latest security patches and also all of the latest packages.

Regards,
Bobby
