You can upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10 by either downloading the ISO and reinstalling completely, or upgrading using the update manager by doing the following (found on an Ubuntu mailing list and I have used 2 time with no problems):

1) Open a terminal
2) Run update-manager -d
3) Click the button that offers an upgrade.

Hope this helps you get a recent version of Octave up and running more quickly.

Don't. Ever.
I'm lucky I didn't do that in the first place, now I *tried* on a machine on the side, not my 'production' desktop.

I upgraded from a working and freshly updated 9.04 (apt-get update && apt-get upgrade) to Alpha 6, with
update-manager -d
after it had worked well on my netbook.
Despite of the upgrade going through without a hitch, after reboot everything is damaged, it seems. I get UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCIES just flashing by, in circles. And this with the old as well as the new kernel, including recovery mode. I can stop the going round in circles with Ctrl-Alt-Del, which will gracefully shut down the machine.

There are lots of people with a similar problem, usually it wouldn't go in circles, but still, not boot at all.
