    Which CD?

    The LiveCD does NOT have an upgrade option. It has a "Test Ubuntu" which is runs from the CD or it has an Install option which is a clean install.

    Those were the only supported options.

    Also, that shows 10.04 LTS -> 11.04, not 10.10 -> 11.10

    Meh. I would have said so too, but I'm just talking from what the USB menu says to me.

    Never mind, if the OP got what they wanted...

    I got the same thing when I upgraded 1 of my machines. Went from 10.04 to 11.04, but it didn't save it even when I clicked keep files.

    There's been an upgrade in place option in ubiquity for some time now. I upgraded 10.10 to 11.04 that way. It worked but uninstalled all apps that weren't on the CD. That was because some sort on error occurred but I never bothered to try an figure it out. I just manually installed the apps that went AWOL.

    Edit. Came in with the 11.04 Live CD. Here's a webupd8 blog showing screen shots.

    The dilemma is whether to do a immaculate put or whether to upgrade to Natty and then Oneiric using the elevate switch (twice). I love ubuntu and use it 99% of the indication, but I'm not really sensation in the enjoin piping (yet). The upgrade secure seems undemanding, but I create that there is an immense turn of changes occurrence to the system when I dawn that. A weightlifting lay would be, of teaching, such tradesman, but I haven't had any experience doing a fresh position over an existing linux lay.
