10.04 was an LTS (long term support) release, and by default, it is set to upgrade to the next LTS, which, by the way, is the upcoming 12.04.
You can change it in the Software Sources, Updates tab.

That said, 10.10 has less then 5 months support left, so if 10.04 works well, you might want to keep it.

10.04 is supported till April 2013.

You would use the Update Manager. Here is a HowTo on the topic:
