    If you want to upgrade to Edgy, you'll need to change every occurance of "dapper" to "edgy" and then run :
    Code:
    sudo aptitude update
    to update the repositories.

    Then you can go on with the upgrade :
    Code:
    sudo aptitude dist-upgrade

    Will those changes be made if I use the "Official" upgrade method (gksu "upgrade-manager -c"?

    Yes, every package manager use /etc/apt/sources.list as a reference.

    Simpler than editing your sources.list is to use
    Code:
    gksu "update-manager -c -d"
    this checks for all the 'official' repositories and then upgrades you will probably need to run automatix again too
