You can update online via the update manager application.
You can also update by using a CD, but
* It needs to be the Alternate CD with the textmode installer and
not the live CD
* You must put the CD into the drive while Ubuntu is running. Then
you will be prompted to update. This does not work if you reboot
with the CD in, then it will be a reinstall
