i think the easiest way is to make a clean install

1. ensure you /home is on a separated partition, if not so, them create 
one and move your /home there (don't forget update /etc/fstab)
2. save list of installed packages to a file - dpkg --get-selections > 
3. install 8.04. Do not forget to point your /home on disk partitioning 
4. cat packages.ii | dpkg --set-selections
5. sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
