I have had no problem upgrading Ubuntu via debs. If you want to compile 
from source, I suggest that you have a look at checkinstall. Basically, 
this lets you compile from source, but it creates a .deb file. This 
means you don't get bits of Myth splattered over your computer and it's 
easy to remove the versio you compiled from source.
