    8.2 is ancient old, I don't think you'll find any repos for it. Updates have stopped years ago

    Yeah, I think all sites would have purged their archives of this old distro to recover space. What you need is a time machine, unfortunately.

    I would also recommend not using an old distro because of security bugs in the software. What spec is your laptop? There are several distros that are suitable for low RAM machines.
