Well I don't know what's happened to my update, the icon at the bottom of the screen is 'broken' meaning there is no internet yet I am on the internet OK?
When I first turn the machine on it checks as normal and says there is updates, I click it but then it breaks!
That I am aware I have done nothing to cause this so any suggestions please?
p.s. Sorry about posting on the end of someone else's post.
EDIT: just realised the bit I am talking about I hope it is called mint update and not something else, sorry!
Could anyone please further explain in more details on how the update tool works, and what it does to help with the update process? How did it fair in the past updates?

First off - there's no need to upgrade just because a new version arrives. After some time the need arrives when you don't get updates any more
We are still working on this, and there will be metapackages for the different versions (there still aren't for all editions)
The upgrade tool is a kind of metapackage (and more ) and it has only been around for update from Elyssa to Felicia but it seems that it has worked fine mostly - I see almost no problems from this upgrade (I think not even a handful posts about it)

But apt-get dist-upgrade can't be used safely.
So I assume this mean only safe way to make Mint distribution upgrade is make new clean istallation?
