There is no such notification. A running distribution, e.g. your
Kubuntu 8.10, will only get 'update' notifications. There is no and
will never be any 'upgrade to a new distribution version'
notification, it simply makes no sense to have such a notification.

PS I strongly suggest to everybody on this list to *read* the precise
questions asked by others, not just *assume* that it could have been
meant otherwise. Answer the exact question given should be enough and
would make the live of all of us much easier...
