You can upgrade with alternate CD.If you don´t have separate home make one following http://psychocats.s465.sureserver.com/ubuntu/separatehome .That way your data/files/setings will b safe.I think it is good to have CD if something goes wrong(because nothing is 100% sure) you can always do fresh install.

Can you help with this problem?
