Check that the new release has actually been tagged in the Subversion repository:
In this case I chose not to make a database backup, unlike last time, because I haven’t made any posts lately and the automated daily backup of the database ensures that I already have a fresh backup copy.
I did, however, backup the installed files:
cd path_to_public_html_folder_where_wp_lives sudo tar -c -v wp > ~/2.0.4-backup.tar gzip --verbose -9 ~/2.0.4-backup.tar
Go to the admin control panel and disable all plugins.
Perform the actual upgrade:
cd wp svn info sudo -u user_that_apache_runs_as -H svn switch http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/tags/2.0.5

Try hitting the upgrade script (at
wp-admin/upgrade.php), although again it doesn’t seem necessary on this release.
Re-enable plug-ins one by one.
