Upgrading Ubuntu/Kubuntu to Gutsy


Has anyone tried or have any advice in how to upgrade from EdgyEft to GutsyGibbon? I never did upgrade to Feisty and now want to upgrade my Edgy version. Is there a way to do this without having to do a fresh install?

You would first have to upgrade Edgy -> Feisty, then Feisty -> Gutsy.
Only one version upgrade at a time is supported.

The short answer is no, you'll have to upgrade Edgy to Feisty, then Feisty to Gutsy.

Might be faster to do a clean install.
