I wouldn't call it a update, upgrade, but a version change.

Take a look at the apt manual, it explains how apt works.
/etc/apt/sources.list is the location where you should change anything
to head to unstable.

Check the aptitude/apt-get instructions/manual even further.

aptitiude update && aptitude dist-upgrade

pay attention, and do some reading before you start!

Good luck,
