There's a reason for that - that's a *really* old LTS release and it's
way past EOL. I'd *strongly* recommend upgrading to get security
support at least.

You could try adding "-n" on the command line, or "CDDBAVAIL=n" in
your config file. If you move forward to a current version of Ubuntu
you'd also have the option of using Musicbrainz for lookups.
