im trying to upgrade from the rc to the final version of ubuntu 9.04. when i go to upgrade manager and do a partial upgrade it says two are going to be removed and one added (java 2 text to speech something like that). when i click start it seems to crash(because it just disappear). i've also used sudo apt get update and sudo apt get upgrade. though im allowed to download stuff using these commands i think im still using the rc because when i go to update manager it still says im only allowed to do a partial upgrade. can anyone help?

Reload, and install all updates, you are done.

I haven't encountered the "you can only do a partial upgrade" yet. As far as I know, just go to synaptic, click the Reload button, click the Marked All Upgrades button, Apply, you're done. (Restart if needed)

My Jaunty switched from Beta to RC to Final.

gksu "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"

Yes my friend...Check using "update-manager -d" and "sudo apt-get update", "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" (without quotes)..
