Question: The apt-get keeps failing on my ubuntu 9.04.

Seems that Ubuntu have a policy when a version leaves support, its no longer supported from the archive.ubuntu.com repository. However all is not lost.

edit your sources list

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

and change 

http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu

to

http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/

Do this on each line which has archive. at the start

Save the list and run 

sudo apt-get update
