  1. If you are not confident using the command line option, there’s another simpler way of upgrading… on the update manager window, there’s a button to the top right hand corner that says ‘Upgrade to 11.04’ (if that’s the latest version). Clicking the button starts the upgrade process.

    Nice tips BTW.

  2. …sorry, my bad. I just read through your post again and noticed you are talking about the server version, instead of the client version.

    Thanks again.
