how to upgrade to ubuntu 8.10 from 8.04 i got an installation cd but no such option


i tried the ubuntu page https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IntrepidUpgrades but it was of no help. the command it told me to run did n't worked. the complete method was according to that page was :

Use this method if the system being upgraded is not connected to the Internet.

1.

Download the alternate installation CD
2.

Burn the ISO to a CD and insert it into the CD-ROM drive of the computer to be upgraded.
*

If the ISO file is on the computer to be upgraded, you could avoid wasting a CD by mounting the ISO as a drive with a command like:

sudo mount -o loop ~/Desktop/ubuntu-8.10-alternate-i386.iso /media/cdrom0

3. A dialog will be displayed offering you the opportunity to upgrade using that CD.
4. Follow the on-screen instructions.

If the upgrade dialog is not displayed for any reason, you may also run the following command using Alt+F2:

gksu "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"

Or in Kubuntu run the following command using Alt+F2:

kdesudo "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"



But thoose commands just did not worked. help me out.

Could you post the error message you are getting when running those commands? Because they should work and we need to see why they are not working for you. Also, have you considered upgrading with the recommended procedure? (Network Upgrade for Ubuntu Desktops)
