I managed to upgrade my pc from 10.1 community to 10.1 official+updates from the Heanet mirrors in Ireland last night. No problems at all.

Which version of 10.1 - CE or OE? - on Easy Urpmi for the core distribution, you'll get Contrib & Main for CE - whereas for OE you'll get Contrib, Main & Updates - which version are you using?
