I want to upgrade to Ubuntu 9.10 from 9.04. I have the Wubi for 9.04. Can I use the Upgrade Manager in Ubuntu to upgrade without losing my system configuration or is there a way to upgrade Wubi without starting over?

I am running a NWP model and I do not have the time to reconfigure my systems environment from scratch.

Thanks!

I don't recall which upgrade I did when I had a Wubi install, but I was able to do a "network upgrade" as you propose. A caution: back up all your data "just in case".

I also note that a "fresh install" may be preferable, given the number of threads on the Forum concerning problems with this method, most of which do not involve Wubi installs. Good luck.
