You can't. You'll have to do a full reinstall.

You are getting the error because the servers are bogged down. You can either wait, or find a working server and use these instructions to force the upgrade manager to use it.

Pooping_fish, the command is "apt-get dist-upgrade". Personally, I like to use "aptitude dist-upgrade" as I feel it resolves dependencies better, even if it does take much longer than APT.

False!

When the update servers aren't slowed to a halt anymore, it will say a new release is available. You should then be able to hit "install," and it should do its thing.
