    How can I upgrade from 12.04 lts to raring?

    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.

    Code:
     sudo apt-get install update-manager-core && sudo do-release-upgrade
    Source

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

    Code:
     sudo apt-get install update-manager-core && sudo do-release-upgrade -d

    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:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...r/+bug/1077676

    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

    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.

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

    Re: How can I upgrade from 12.04 lts to raring?

    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.

    Code:
    sudo sed -i 's/quantal/raring/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
    That changes the repositories. Follow it with the usual

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    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
