Migrate Eranbot from Ubuntu Precise to Trusty
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

All  Tools/bots/webservices running on Ubuntu Precise 12.04 (jsub release=precise)
will no longer function starting on Monday, March 6, 2017, and will crash with an error.

Ubuntu Precise was released in April 2012, and support for it
(including security updates) will cease in April 2017. We need to shut
down all Precise hosts before the end of support date to ensure that
Tool Labs remains a secure platform.

You (username: niharika29) are registered as admin/maintainer for the following tools,
that are still on Precise: 
tools.eranbot

Please make sure to migrate these over to Trusty as early as possible, to
ensure continued operation.

The steps to migrate to Trusty, and more information about the Precise deprecation
are here - https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tools_Precise_deprecation#What_should_I_do.3F.

A quick tip for webservices - running `webservice stop; webservice start` -
will migrate it to trusty (webservice restart currently sticks).
