I'm guessing you something like the following in your '/etc/apt/sources.list' file:

deb cdrom:[Kubuntu 6.10 _Edgy Eft_ - Release amd64 (20061025.1)]/ edgy main restricted

This is indicating to update-manager to first look for a cdrom file containing Jaunty packages on it. In the event that you don't have that CD I'd comment any lines with cdrom: in them and then try upgrading again.

Changed in update-manager (Ubuntu):
status: New → Incomplete

Thanks!

By commenting the line deb ... as you recommended I succeeded to proceed
to upgrade to 9.04.

deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 8.04 _Hardy Heron_ - Release amd64 (20080423)]/ hardy
