Seems a lot of people have problems going from Dapper to Edgy so I just 
wonder if some may be doing it wrong? Here are the instructions from 

     * NOTE: This procedure upgrades your system over the Internet, 
which requires a large download of several hundred megabytes.
     * In Konqueror go to /etc/apt, right click on sources.list and 
choose Actions -> Edit as Root
     * Change all instances of dapper to edgy
     * Launch a console with KMenu -> System -> Konsole
     * In the console run: sudo apt-get update
     * In the console run: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade and follow the 
prompts to upgrade
     * In the console run: sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop 
python-qt3 python-kde3 ubuntu-minimal and follow the prompts to install
     * Reboot your computer

If you have a Kubuntu 6.10 CD, put it in the drive, and run apt-cdrom 
from the command line. Then follow the instructions above.

As one can see it is not only about changing to edgy in sources.list and 
then running dist-upgrade.

sorry if I sound lecturing but hopefully someone will avoid mistakes,
