There is a xubuntu-users mailing list that would be more appropriate for
this question [1].

However, I can tell you that Xubuntu 7.04 is no longer supported, so that is
why you were getting the 404 errors when trying to update your system.
Regular (non-Long Term Support) releases are supported for 18 months
following release, so you would need to upgrade to a more recent release to
receive updates.
