There's an issue here, Phil, about where and how Karljurgen got his
distribution.  If he got it through the Ubuntu aptitude system, or similar,
then he'll have got the original first release of TL2010, without any of the
updates that have been issued since its first release.  The Ubuntu built-in
distro of TL doesn't get regular, automatic updates.  Basically, if you get
your TL through the debian/aptitude pipeline, then you have one version of
everything for a year, until TL2011 comes out.

Using tlmgr means unintalling the whole TeXlive system from Ubuntu - using
the aptitude interface.  Then you have to reinstall everything again over
the net (here <http://www.tug.org/texlive/acquire-netinstall.html>).  It's
not hard, but it's a bit daunting for beginners.
