Hi all,

You could try to install edubuntu-desktop and then change software sources to look for normal releases.

sudo aptitude install edubuntu-desktop

Open software sources from the Sys Admin menu - Update tab - change Release Upgrade to Normal and reload, then run Update Manager.

I'd be inclined to download the iso and do a clean install though.

I've installed Edubuntu. My impression is that it isn't really a different version of Ubuntu. The Edubuntu package just installs to the underlying Ubuntu and runs like any other application.

I'd try upgrading your Ubuntu installation first. Lots of instructions for that. Then if Edubuntu did not also update, just install it from the repos.
