Asked by Tim Morrow

I upgraded from 8.10 Intrepid to the Jaunty Beta. When the final version of jaunty is released, will I be able to get it, or will I need to do a clean install?

You must only keep this installed Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 updated and upgraded.

Ubuntu will show an icon on top right icon (near date and time) when new updates are available...

Doing this you will have the stable release...

Hope this helps

You can also manually check and make updates and upgrades of your Ubuntu by terminal:

Please open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories check → Terminal and type:

sudo apt-get update

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.

sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get autoremove

And to clean the downloaded and already installed packages from cache:

sudo apt-get clean

Hope this helps
