    Smile Simple question about upgrading

    I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 beta 1 and was wondering if upgrades normally come from running:

    Code:
     sudo apt-get update
    And then . . .

    Code:
     sudo apt-get upgrade
    Those are the two things I know to run but I'm not sure how they work or if running them after Ubuntu 11.04 is released next week will upgrade the system to that. Or do I have to download it from the internet and reinstall or something?

    Thanks

    Just keep doing that and you will end up with a full install of 11.04.

    Although update-manager has been working well for me.

    Good Luck
