Upgrading using the alternate CD/DVD
Use this method if the system being upgraded is not connected to the Internet. 
Download and burn the alternate installation CD 
Insert it into your CD-ROM drive 
A dialog will be displayed offering you the opportunity to upgrade using that 
Follow the on-screen instructions 
If the upgrade dialog is not displayed for any reason, you may also run the 
following command using Alt+F2: 
gksu "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade" 
Note that for Kubuntu the upgrade dialogue will not be displayed and you will 
need to install gksu before running the above command (it will not work with 

I would add that if gksu does not work, it's worth trying:
sudo "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"
Also, the cdrom may be mounted on /media/cdrom go have a look for the path.

BTW - I am staying on Dapper, so this is all directly out of my ... um ... 
google :D
