as per title I have installed 12.04 lts (only a cli system).
I'd like to know if there's a command or a method that would allow me to upgrade to Raring (raring daily cd do not seem to work on my pc)

Not directly, but if you upgrade to 12.10 you can easily upgrade to 13.04.

You will have to upgrade to Quantal first.


sudo apt-get install update-manager-core && sudo do-release-upgradeSource (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Upgrades#Network_upgrades)

Raring Ringtail is a develpment release, so the command is slightly different. You need to already be running Quantal.


sudo apt-get install update-manager-core && sudo do-release-upgrade -dSOurce (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Upgrades#Upgrading_to_development_releases), same page as before. (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Upgrades#Upgrading_to_development_releases)

Sorry to be a pain in the chest,but i tried the command with a fresh installation(just to be safe) of Quantal (only the second part) and I got the bug illustrated here:

Any idea?

Since you're open to fresh installs why not grab a fresh image here:

No doubt it's always a crap shoot because they're testing iso's but what the hay :lolflag:

That was the initial plan, unfortunately I'm experiencing a nasty bug :

So I thought as alternative to install quantal and upgrade from there.
But again I 'm experiencing another bug again in upgrading.
It's all so depressing.

I'm trying to figure out the depends and recommends for the gnome remix:

Everything is rough right now. But that mini.iso does work if you're familiar with it.

There is a standard method that we used when the new development cycle started. We took an updated Quantal and changed the software sources/repositories to Raring.

This is how I got my Raring install in the first place back in November. and being unable to get a Raring ISO image to work I converted a second Quantal just the other day. A lot of updates need to be done but it will still work.


sudo sed -i 's/quantal/raring/g' /etc/apt/sources.list

That changes the repositories. Follow it with the usual


sudo apt-get update


sudo apt-get upgrade

I am planning later today to install Gnome Remix. That will be Quantal and then use this method to convert it to Raring. If it does not work in this case I can easily re-install the 12.10 Remix.

Regards.

Followed that and it worked: though I needed dist-upgrade to pull in the kernel upgrade

Downloaded a fresh copy of 12.10 and installed it in VB. Then, using the above sources list line, I changed sources list to raring.

Ran into problems with broken dependencies after running all regular updates, including dist-upgrade.

ran the following two lines:


sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get -f install These fixed dependency problems and allowed for the installation of the 3.7 kernel and the remaining upgrades.

I already had Raring running in VB but wanted to give this upgrade method a try and was frustrated until I stumbled upon the 'dpkg' line above.

Thanks, Graham, for providing the sources list info.

Graphical way (bypass the bug):


do-release-upgrade -d -f DistUpgradeViewGtk3
