In this case - and which is something I tend to do all the time - is to
install from fresh. I save my most important sub-dir - ~/.mozilla and
~/.thunderbird, Documents, Downloads, and dwhelper, and then install
Everything apart from the previous are reproducible or downloadable and
installable - so it's a new, fresh, install.
But I can accept what you just stated about upgrading rather than
installing from fresh because what I found with 10.10 is that the
installation is simply a BREEZE. Ubuntu gets better everytime a new
version comes out...
Nevertheless, I think that 10.10 ought to be a fresh install. Quite a
few things have changed from 10.04.1 - but that is according to me. YMMV
- as it appears to be.
