How to install software or upgrade from old unsupported release? – Ask Ubuntu

I'm trying to install CNVWorkshop (cnv.chop.edu), but now facing problem of running Ubuntu 10.10 which has faced the end-of-life since April 2013. So, now running "sudo apt-get install" anything would not work, since the repo was set to look for files from archive.ubuntu.com.
AAfter spending sometimes 'google' as usual, here's where I end up.

Not that I intended not to upgrade to a newer release, but this is probably a relatively faster way to deploy another software that I still need to use.

sudo sed -i -e 's/archive.ubuntu.com\|security.ubuntu.com/old-releases.ubuntu.com/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
