I have just gone ( am just going ) through this process myself. I found
that my Feisty install CD was just a coaster, so I installed from the
good Dapper disk that I had, confirmed that it worked, and continued. I
am working on a clean machine, so my results may be suspect. For some
reason, the 6.06 Upgrade Manager did not offer Edgy as an upgrade
option, so I went with the "Manual" upgrade process offered on the
I changed all of the references from "dapper" to "edgy" in the
sources.list file and did "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade".
Actually, I did them as seperate commands and repeated the dist-upgrade
just to check, but I seemed to wind up with a working Edgy system.
Upgrade Manager then offered me Feisty as an "Automatic" upgrade, so I
went with it. When I last looked at that system, it was nearing the end
of the unpacking/upgrading phase, with no apparent errors, so I am
expecting the best.
I will let you know more as soon as I know, but that may not be until
