    I am currently using a Ubuntu 9.04 with some of the Ubuntu Studio packages installed...

    How come I cannot see the distribution upgrade option in my update manager....

    - have you tried to change your download server?
    - in terminal try typing "sudo update-manager -d", or "sudo do-release-upgrade" that might work?

    Personally i would upgrade via a clean install and make /home and / on two separate partition, less hassle in the long run

    Have you clicked the "Check" button in your Update Manager, and if you have, you should try switching your repository mirror.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    You are probably just lucky. I upgraded and wish I hadn't. I think a lot of users feel the same way. We may be better off after we get all the kinks worked out, but we had stable, functional systems before the upgrade.
