Install K3b via Synaptic and use that to burn your ISO to CD.

Once you've burned the Ubuntu CD you can upgrade straight from that

recognises it's an Ubuntu install CD. A window will then appear asking
if you want to upgrade Ubuntu. Click yes and it will then source the
upgrade partly from the CD and partly from online repositories.

I was unable to burn the disk. I think that the file is too big for a CD but

It failed so I tried a blank DVD, that failed too. The error code was 255.
It slso said that sometime using the TAO mode will work. I have no idea what
that is.
