I tried going through the update-manager this morning and it worked
for me. That's the first time I've tried update-manager and I was
pleasantly surprised. It goes through your sources.list, comments out
any third-party repositories and changes all dapper instances to edgy
(among other things). To try that do:

gksudo update-manager -c -d
