Default Missing tabs in Software Sources panel - 10-21-2009, 10:11 PM

I just took delivery of my mini 10v with Ubuntu 8.04 installed. Having looked into how to upgrade, etc I find that when I open the Software Sources panel (system, administration, software sources) there is no 'Ubuntu Software' tab. I only have the 'Updates', 'Third Party software' and 'Authentication' tabs.
Does this mean I am destined to only ever have 8.04 on my Dell? Is there a way to get the correct options?

Use unetbootin and a 9.04 iso to make a bootable USB key and do a clean install of 9.04 from the USB key.
