No upgrade option offered by Adept for Edgy -> Feisty


I've upgraded three of my computers from Kubuntu Edgy to Feisty, but my main desktop... won't.

When I run Adept Manager, making sure I have edgy-updates enabled, it doesn't offer the Distribution Upgrade tool. I have removed extraneous repos, made sure all the needed ones are present, I even rebooted the system-- I cannot get the system to offer me the upgrade.

What could I be doing wrong? The same network was used for the other two systems, and I don't think anything is missing from my sources. In fact, the list is basically identical to the list on a computer that did successfully offer the upgrade.

On someone's advice, I tried adding
Code:
deb http://kubuntu.org/packages/kde-356-pre-feisty-upgrade/ edgy main
to my repos and updating doesn't change the situation, either.

I may just wait till I have a free weekend and do a clean install-- thankfully, I always keep /home on a separate partition. But I'd really prefer to just upgrade!

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Here's my sources.list:
Code:
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy-updates universe multiverse 
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ edgy multiverse 
# deb http://packages.freecontrib.org/ubuntu/plf/ edgy free non-free

I finally gave up on the graphical install and used the directions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FeistyUpgradesManual , which was basically aptitude dist-upgrade after modifying my sources.list.

As advertised, it errored, and big time: Midway through, dpkg failed and the root file system had become read-only. A quick online search on another computer lead me to remount using
Code:
sudo mount -o remount,rw /
followed by
Code:
sudo dpkg --configure -a
and once everything was back on track, running dist-upgrade a few more times. At reboot, it said my root filesystem had errors and a manual fsck was needed. I ran it, saw some inode errors (should I be worried?) and hit yes to fix. Then, Ctrl-D and it restarted again.

This time, it booted fine, and Feisty is up and running. Wish the graphical tool had worked for me, but at least it worked out in the end.
