No, you cannot upgrade Ubuntu using the Live CD.

However, you can upgrade using the Ubuntu Alternate Install CD.

Read this Ubuntu Community Documentation: How to Upgrade from Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 9.10.
You can download Ubuntu 9.10 Alternate Install CD from the Ubuntu 9.10 releases page.

Note:
Ubuntu 9.10 will not be supported beyond April 2011.

  • Normal releases, server or desktop, are supported for 18 months.
  • LTS (Long Term Support) releases are supported for 3 years on the desktop and 5 years on the server.
