I just upgraded today from 6.06.1 to 6.4 to 7.04. I am going to upgrade 
to 7.10 tomorrow.

Try this link. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EdgyUpgrades

By the way, I had to install both gksu and update-manager which are the 
commands you are instructed to use on the link I just listed.

When I did my first update to 6.4 a window opened saying there was a new 
version. It asked if I wanted to upgrade to 7.04.
