Yo9u need to reinstall the release you wish to use. 10.04 is a development release meant for people that wish to help with development and find bugs and fix them.

10.04 is now the official release .Why do you want to install an older version ?
This thread was started when lucid was in development.

I dont think you can download it the only way i can think of is by installing mint as it is based on 9.10. It is the same base with codecs flash and some menu changes etc.

You can easily download it, actually. The Ubuntu team keeps ISOs and Torrents to said ISOs around for all versions. Below is where the Karmic ISOs and Torrents are kept.

Backup you important data, install the release you wish, re-install your programs, etc.

Have Fun

Much easier is to backup (clone) your entire system before any upgrade or major change!

External USB hard drives are cheap. You can use:

rsync -ax / /media/USBdrive to "clone" your drive. Keep a live CD handy and learn how to fix UUID and Grub, Grub2 issues and you can be back to where you were in short order if something goes wrong.

Doing this with Windows is major pain caused by malicous coding and registry settings that make changing motherboards near impossible and then throw "Activation" into the mix and well I still do my windows work on Windows 2000 (except for video editing where Win7 rocks).

I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 as soon as the official release was available. I find 10.04 to be extremely unstable with respect to the taskbars on the desktop. I moved the upper taskbar to the bottom and the lower one to the top. That works, except that at random intervals, one or both taskbars cease to display anything; they simply display light grey strips where icons, labels or dates and times should appear. This is particularly frequent with my upper taskbar. Rebooting fixes things, but only temporarily. Has anybody got any ideas? I am certainly tempted to rollback!

I became adventurous and decided to upgrade my 9.10 install to 10.04 as it is official and the upgrade manager kept showing me that it was available. So i decided to upgrade using the upgrade manager software.

Boy that was a mistake.

After it did the install and came up, the following problems started to appear.
The top bars of the applications just disappear on the whim.
Can't move applications around the screen as there is no top bar.
The X at the top right corner of the window does not show up, so can't close the app down.

Had to reboot couple of time before it seemed to settle.

Now I find out that my VM server 2.02 does not want to run at all. No support for it. Can't find any documents around to help out either.

I guess I am re-installing 9.10 from scratch and starting over.

I don't trust MS when they come out with new releases (usually wait till SP1 or SP2 before installing them), seems like I have to do the same thing with Ubuntu.
