[xubuntu-users] 14.04 kinda installed, what about upgrades

so at bootup you can boot into either
13.10 with data
or 14.4 fresh.
Whichever one you boot into will update itself.

the 14.40 could hunt out the data in the 13.10 partition,
and copy it over.

But if you update the 13.10 one
it may keep your bookmarks, passwords etc i think

Subject: [xubuntu-users] 14.04 kinda installed, what about upgrades

I downloaded the iso and installed it on my machine that has windows and
ubuntu 13.10.  Unfortunately it did not replace my 13.10 with 14.40.
Instead it added it and moved my 13.10 to a subdirectory in either the
/media/john directory with a long cryptic name.

The 14.40 does not work because it can't find any of my files, icons, etc.

Now I am getting upgrades, as usual, but I don't know what version they
are for, and whether I should install them.

I suppose that I will be removing my data files and any programs that I
can from the home directory (and possibly the opt dir), reformatting all
of the partitions except the window ones and then reinstalling.

what should I do about these updates, I am concerned that I might trash
the os
