I saw on here that the update manager isnt going to show 12.04 LTS upgrade until 12.04.1 comes out in about June or July. some say its no recommended to upgrade till 12.04.1 comes out. but you can press ALT + F2 then type update-manager -d. click "run". now update manager should have the upgrade to 12.04 LTS option now.

The above does not work in Kubuntu as update manager is not installed by default
