As per my comment here I don't think this question should have been bumped to the home page. The question is abandoned: OP hasn't signed on in 4+ years, 2 days after question was posted. Therefor extremely unlikely to respond to comments or confirm or deny answers. The question is about EOL Ubuntu 12.04 which none of us in our right minds would be running and therefor unable to duplicate.

But it begs the meta question... "who is the community"? I know I don't have "bump" powers.

Community user is a bot. It automatically bumps old messages that fits the criteria.

From its profile:

Hi, I'm not really a person.

I'm a background process that helps keep this site clean!

I do things like

  • Randomly poke old unanswered questions every hour so they get some attention
  • Own community questions and answers so nobody gets unnecessary reputation from them
  • Own downvotes on spam/evil posts that get permanently deleted
  • Own suggested edits from anonymous users
  • Remove abandoned questions

You can check the criteria from the link at top of the post and see this summary by math.se if you want more details.
