I was reading the upgrade guide - but had the idea to try the upgrade via Magento connect. but is there any chance to update via admin panel

    FYI: There is never a compelling reason to upgrade via Connect. You are always better to upgrade in a dev environment where you can control all the files. Commented Oct 20, 2015 at 12:23

No, you cannot update to Magento2 using admin interface or magento connect.

Magento 2 has backward incompatible changes to code and database, so magento team developed data migration tools that allow migrate data form 1.x to 2.x version, but it have commandline interface.
