This is Lita (Dan's wife and the Linux administrator...lol.)...I would
first try to use the package manager to use the GUI to upgrade....I
prefer synaptic, but the installed one (adept) should also work...you
should be able to open it & see Upgrade on the menu toolbar...if
not, just install synaptic from where you install additional software
& then you should see it...alternatively, there is a command line
way (if you prefer this e-mail back); I am including a few web tutorial
links as well.
(they have different info on the links even though they appear the same)
There have been 3 official upgrades since Gutsy: you will need to
repeat the process for each upgrade you choose...you can only upgrade 1
distribution at a time (ie. feisty to gutsy; gutsy to heron; heron to
ibex; ibex to jaunty & then jaunty to karmic
Hardy Heron 8.04
Intrepid Ibex 8.10
Jaunty Jackalope 9.04
Karmic Koala 9.10 (releasing in October).
I would suggest you upgrade to at least Jaunty as there have been
serious improvements since Gutsy....
Good luck...if you need further (in depth) support, check out our
website (MyPCMyWay.com) and sign-up for regular e-mail/website
support. We are attempting to build the largest consumer built Linux
knowledge base on the web.
Hope this answered your questions...if you need further help, just
e-mail dan back & I will intercept and help you get your system
up...forgot to ask if you are using Ubuntu or Kubuntu (kde or Gnome
desktop?)...both should have adept...again, I prefer synaptic as my GUI
package manager, but that is just because it is easier to use...look
for the upgrade on the toolbar & it should upgrade for you...make
sure you have done a complete update first.

I just installed Ubuntu Fiesty on my
laptop. How do I upgrade to Gutsy through the net?
