After this operation, 304MB of additional disk space will be used. What these commands do is confirm that for any updates apt-get should be consulting the specified repositories. From what I can tell the run upgrade option is really just a GUI way of running the cdromupgrade script that comes with the CD.This time it runs nice and smooth, just the way it's meant to do.Thus, people using this version won’t need to upgrade Xubuntu every six months when a new version is released.

Usually I install Xubuntu afresh when a new release arrives.

A message will appear informing you of the availability of the new release.

Hello all, I have just installed the new Intrepid release, but I am experiencing problems with it.

In order to be able to start the upgrade process, you’ll need to start the Software Sources application from Applications-System.

In that application, under the Updates tab, you can select which new distribution releases you want to be notified of at the bottom.
