By the way, are you sure you're running 11.04, rather than 10.10? Maverick 10.10 is the latest stable version; Natty 11.04 is in Alpha 1 and is suitable for developers and testers, but not for production use.

There's a very unfortunate bug in Ubuntu Maverick 10.10, where System > About Ubuntu tells you that you're running 11.04. This is bug 690248 (see also If you're unsure of what version of Ubuntu you are running, you can find out by running the command "lsb_release -d" (without the quotes) in the Terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal).
