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 
from scratch.

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.
