I updated my mythbuntu system to 9.04 a few weeks ago. I had a whole
afternoon carved out ready to deal with any unforeseen issues that can
arise when you update. However, it went smoother than any upgrade I
have ever done and it was fast too. Everything was done and I was
watching TV after about 45 minutes, without me doing anything special.
I do always do a database backup immediately before I do an upgrade
though (http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Database_Backup_and_Restore) and I
backup my main system files (/etc, home, and whatever else is
important for you setup.).
