No. It's a whole different version of the OS.

alsharifhoussam:

In other word: TB0ne says Ubuntu Dapper does not work to get upgrade. This word is clear from the distro documentation itself --if you read it. Dapper version gets long support but it is not intended to upgrade. You have to download, burn and use newer version to enjoy upgrade features.

Hope this helps.

Goodluck.
