Do you really mean Lisa? That is old, old, old, and no longer supported. Install Mint 17.x or 18.x.

Then use XFCE. Probably darn near every piece of software ever written has security bugs in it, and by the time something is as old as Mint Lisa, a lot of them are known. But when an OS is past its support period, there are no updates. None. Not even security updates. So you really ought to install something newer. If Mint 17 or 18 XFCE is too much, try antiX or one of the other distros designed to work with older hardware.

But to answer your original question, all the software repositories for Lisa have long since been taken down, and that's why your system can't seem to find anything. It isn't there anymore.

If you mean could you install a recent (17.x or 18.x) Mint XFCE version then install LXDE on it, yes, that shouldn't be a problem. LXDE is available for install in both Mint 17 and 18. You could do it from the terminal, but you wouldn't have to, you could use either Synaptic or Software Manager to install it, if you don't mind doing things through the graphic interface. If you want to install a different desktop environment on Mint, XFCE is the best to start with. I recently installed Fluxbox on both Mint 17 and 18, and it works well. Doesn't use much RAM or CPU.
