    upgrade to 13.04

    Hi i visited http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/upgrade to learn how to upgrade from 12.10 to 13.04. Now i dont have update manager instead i have software updater in my dash. However when i open terminal and type update-manager it opens the same thing as software updater from my dash. Hence i assume it is the same thing. It checks for updates and after downloading some files it just say your system is upto date. Their is no option for upgrading.Help how do i upgrade.

    To upgrade it's easy, just open your terminal and run the following command:
    Code:
    do-release-upgrade

    If you want to use Software Updater to upgrade to 13.04, open Software Updater and then click on the settings button. A new window will open - click on the updates tab. Look for "Notify me of a new Ubuntu version" near the bottom. If you are not being prompted for the 13.04 release it is probable that this is set to "For long-term support versions." If so, change the drop-down to "For any new version", and close the tabbed window. Software Updater should then prompt you for upgrading to 13.04 after it has updated the metadata.

    Please do not PM me about your forum account unless you have been asked to. The correct place to contact an admin about your account is here.

    The foolproof way is to download the iso, use unetbootin to make a boot disk(usb), and reboot system.
    boot from the disk(usb), upgrade to 13.04.

    Thread moved to Installation & Upgrades.

    Unsure why this was in Absolute Beginners ...

    You will have better luck posting under the correct category. Cheers.

    Hey hi yeah i got it running and then my net failed for some reason.Now that i have my net back i typed the command in terminal except this time it says no new releases found.

    I then typed update-manager in terminal and after downloading some stuff it says

    Not all upgrades can be installed

    Run a partial upgrade to install as many updates as possible

    This can be caused by:

    Aprevious upgrade wich did'nt complete
    problems with some of the installed software
    unofficial software packages not provided by ubuntu
    Normal changes of a pre-release verssion of ubuntu

    If i click continue it gives me a list of packages. At the bottom it says 786Mb to be downloaded. This figure is off as when itried using the terminal with command do-release-upgrade it gave me a figure of 1073Mb and i had downloaded only around 80 Mb of files. Please help. How do i get my upgrade process back on track.

    First make sure you have evrything important backed up. Then try:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install -f
    If that runs without errors then:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Note that is dist-upgrade not do-release-upgrade. Let us know what happens.
    Please mark your thread as solved if you get a satisfactory response.
