The server version of 10.04 should still be supported for another two 
years, so the repos will be the same for that time. After the server 
version reaches EOL, you can still download applications if you change 
the server from * to in 
"/etc/apt/sources.list". That server keeps all the old unsupported 
Ubuntu versions.
