HELENA is the main lady, however, I've duel booted KATYA. I have no problem with package downloads for KATYA but HELENA won't fetch. Is the HELENA package source no longer available?
Thanks for your help.

and you can update with all the updates that were released till end of support.
I still run Gloria Mint 7 on my desktop computer and this works for Gloria so hopefully it will also work for Helena.
in terminal run
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Then edit section under ## UBUNTU REPOSITORIES
change the sources to (the blue ones)
## +++ Ubuntu 9.10 karmic (stable) +++
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic-security main restricted universe multiverse
## +++ Backports & Proposed (not as stable) +++
#deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic-backports main restricted universe multiverse
#deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic-proposed main restricted universe multiverse
then save and close the file
then in terminal run
sudo apt-get update
then in Synaptic Package Manager hit RELOAD button to be able to install new apps like VLC , gThumb etc...
Then you should also be able to run mintUpdate and get all available updates that were released.
