Alright, so i want to upgrade my ubuntu 10.4 netbook to the new 10.10 netbook....
On the ubuntu website it says that if you want to upgrade, there should be an option for that in the update manager, but i don't see that anywhere, even when i check for updates/upgrades....

I think that by default, an LTS release, such as 10.04, only checks for an LTS upgrade. Check out the upgrade instructions.

Go to System->Administration->Update Manager, click on "Settings" button, click on the "Updates" tab, then change the "Release upgrade" setting to "Normal releases."

That setting is probably currently set to "Long term releases only", and since 10.10 isn't a long term release, it won't show up.

Oh, and after thant you might have to click on the "Check" button in the Upgrade Manager to make it see if an upgrade is available.
