It is possible to update an EBS instance.  If you're running a previous
ami , say
  us-east-1 ami-2d4aa444 ubuntu-lucid-10.04-i386-server-20100427.1
and you want to get to
  us-east-1 ami-1437dd7d ubuntu-lucid-10.04-i386-server-20100827

This will essentially be the same as 'apt-get update && apt-get

The one thing that is different is that you have to change the kernel that
you're running.  That can only be done on EBS root instances, and how to
do it is documented at:
