Hi everyone.

I installed xubuntu 8.04 a while ago and upgraded regularly since. But now i would like to upgrade to xubuntu 9.04. But to do that i need to be sure my current version is 8.10, but how do i see that?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, found out my kernel build was for 8.04..

To others in same situation (newbies like me):
The reason for 8.10 not showing in update manager was my setting in synaptic was wrong. It was set for "Long term releases" instead of "Normal releases". After that the 8.10 update was available from Update Manager.
