I read that one can upgrade to Lucid Lynx from Karmic (9.10) by either doing it online or using the Alternate Install CD from Ubuntu.


I don't prefer to upgrade online as I fear a power outage more than two hours that can create havoc in the upgrade process. (My UPS just gives an hours back up).

I don't know what I will get in the Alternate Install CD upgrade.

Is it possible to upgrade using the 'regular' download, after burning the ISO of Ubuntu 10.04 LiveCD? If so how do I upgrade?

I have installed some programs in Karmic from the Ubuntu repositories, not included as default in the LiveCD. Could I get these remaining upgrade packages online.

Please could you help? Thanks.

Upgrading to 10.04 with the Live CD is not an option. Due to space limitations the Live CD does not include the necessary software.

You can use - as you have read - the alternate CD or a network upgrade. Does not matter - in the end you will wind up with the same results.

In the end you will still have to upgrade some packages over the network - Any software packages you have installed that are not on the Alternated CD - and - any packages updated since the alternated CD was released.

Thank you for the help.

I successfully upgraded my Laptop without the CD over the Internet.

The 'Update Manager does a great job.

I must compliment you on the picture of that dog, handsome specimen.
