A direct upgrade from 9.04 to 10.04 is not supported, AFAIK. I would recommend to do a fresh install of 10.04.

11.04 is there.. If you are not comfortable with 11.04, you can use 10.10 also.
As the previous comment, probably it is a problem with the direct upgrade..But i am not really sure.

Note that Ubuntu 11.04 comes with a new desktop. I just want you to remember that if you don't like it, you can change it (while still using Ubuntu 11.04).
