Is there any way i can get ubuntu 10.04 on a lxd container? I cannot find a way for it online.

As far as I know, Ubuntu 10.04 (as a container image) is not supported any more so you cannot find it in the ubuntu: repository of official container images.

Currently, you can go back up to Ubuntu 12.04,

$ lxc image list ubuntu:12.04

+------------------+--------------+--------+---------------------------------------------+--------+----------+------------------------------+

But with Ubuntu 10.04, it says:

$ lxc image list ubuntu:10.04
+-------+-------------+--------+-------------+------+------+-------------+
| ALIAS | FINGERPRINT | PUBLIC | DESCRIPTION | ARCH | SIZE | UPLOAD DATE |
+-------+-------------+--------+-------------+------+------+-------------+

Technically, it should be possible, with some effort, to put together an Ubuntu 10.04 container image.
At http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ you can get both ISO images and deb repository files for old versions of Ubuntu.

Is your requirement for 10.04 strong enough to make the effort to create an Ubuntu 10.04 LXD container image? Or, could you adjust your requirements so that you can use the supported Ubuntu 12.04 container image?
