Assuming that
a) You are running Kubuntu 6.06
b) You want to upgrade to Kubuntu 6.10
Have you tried the instructions at 
http://kubuntu.org/announcements/6.10-release.php (near the end, with the 
heading 'Upgrading from 6.06 LTS')? Make sure to include the apt-cdrom step 
to use your DVD, otherwise it will download everything again. Also, I would 
be inclined to use aptitude in place of apt-get, as it handles dependencies 

This question really belongs on the Kubuntu mailing lists rather than 
kde-linux, as it is a distribution issue.
