    Question Did the upgrade take?

    Like thousands of you, I got the message that I can upgrade to the new version. It went through all the motions, all the "remove lilo" and "keep this" and "remove this", etc, everything went fine with no errors, comp restarted... nothing seems to have changed, my "About Ubunu" still says 8.1, and I still get a message that I can upgrade to the new version... I'm not a total n00b but not far from it, so any help would be appreciated.

    Re: Did the upgrade take?

    I had the same problem, ran the upgrade again, and this time it told me it would take two and a half days to download the packages needed. The download speed jumps around, often falling to 17 kb/s. Is this a problem at the server end? I cancelled the upgrade, downloaded the whole 9.04 image, burned it, but it will not auto-run. Is there a way to upgrade from the image (point the upgrade manager at the image?) I don't know about 9.04, but the upgrade manager seems kinda buggy.

    Servers from Ubuntu often get real busy and go real slow when the new version comes out.

    You can upgrade by using the alternate cd not the desktop cd.
    You may experience speed reduction from the servers over the next few days as lots of people are trying to upgrade.
