There is a very good reason why I asked the man if he read the URL I 

There it states:

To avoid damaging your system, upgrading should only be done from one 
release to the next release (e.g. Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 9.10) or from 
one LTS release to the next (e.g. Ubuntu 6.06LTS to Ubuntu 8.04LTS). If 
you wish to 'skip' a version, you can backup your data and do a fresh 
installation, or progressively upgrade to each successive version. For 
example, to upgrade from Ubuntu 8.10 to Ubuntu 9.10, first upgrade to 
9.04, then upgrade 9.04 to 9.10.

He is upgrading from 8.04 LTS to 10.4 LTS. Whether 10.04 is released or 
not is immaterial, but the situation is covered by what the Ubuntu 
Upgrade instructions are stating.
