Right now, don't lose any time. Do it daily. Update both installs. Do
not run distribution upgrade in Karmic or you'll end up with two
identical Lucid installs.

Updated systems, (most of time, but not always) means safer and more
reliable systems

On terminal:

sudo aptitude update

and then:

sudo aptitude safe-upgrade

Or after configuring System / Administration / Software Sources, run
System / Administration / Update Manager, Check and Install.
