what does the package manager do?? is this the upgrade thing, if so what do you get with the new version of ubuntu, is it worth it or should i just stick to the version of ubuntu that i already have!!

Hi johndavid1985.

The update manager can upgrade to a newer version, if you choose.

What version of ubuntu are you using?

The package manager also installs all the programs, that are in the repositories.

This should help.

10.04 is a long term support version.

It is stable far longer than the new releases.
