Donot upgrade from Magento Connect. You will end up with a broken store.
Do with the new install method and then database migration. Goodluck.

My advice when it comes to upgrades is to just backup your data, re-install and re-insert everything.

Upgrading through Magento connect has always been disastrous for me!

Sure enough, the link is bad. Leads to itself. I doubt that was the popular demand.

This article was removed because of it’s age and no longer relevant to current versions. I’m still looking into a guide.
That’s my update. Contact me directly as always.
