An iso is just a CD image copied to a file. I will do whatever the CD is
designed to do

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

That's all in the release notes and update instructions linked from
