When I try to upgrade I am having a few problems, and would really appreciate some help.  I can’t run the update through ssh or magentoconnect until I remove the Blue Skin from my install.  This is a problem because my entire site is designed around this skin.  Once I remove Blue Skin from my install I can then upgrade to 1.4.  But for some reason my categories do not work and put up error messages when clicked on.  I have tried a few modifications that I have found online, but there always seems to be a glitch when clicking on the categories.  Is there no Blue Skin for 1.4?  Has anyone gotten this to work flawlessly?  What do I have to do?

The second problem is I can’t access my admin section by going to the website  When I do this it puts me back to my home page.  The only way I can access the admin section is to  Is anyone having this problem?  Is there a fix?

Thanks for you help… I really appreciate it.
