To upgrade from 8.10 to Kubuntu 9.04, over the Internet, use the following procedure.

Click on the update notifier icon when it prompts that a new version is available, or press alt-F2 and run the following command:
update-notifier-kde -u

    Didn’t work, only manage to get this error:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “/usr/bin/update-notifier-kde”, line 28, in
    from PyKDE4.kdecore import *
    RuntimeError: the sip module supports API v3.0 to v3.7 but the PyKDE4.kdecore module requires API v3.8

    Tried Synaptic upgrade after that and did the job.

    Thanks, followed your instructions and had the most painless upgrade I think I’ve ever had!
