    LTS Versions can be upgraded to the next LTS....for example: 12.04 can be directly upgraded to 14.04 when it arrives...
    thanks for such a helpful information.....so i have to update to 13.04 LTS to fetch 13.10 NON-LTS but how long will 13.10 be working??any idea??

    You were already given this link, but maybe you didn't read it? https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

    The only person in this thread who has said "13.04 is an LTS release supported for 5 years" is you. I think you may have your facts mixed up.

    Here is a handy page that shows exactly how long each Ubuntu release is supported for: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

    Ubuntu releases always follow a YY.MM numbering system, so 13.04, 13.10, 14.04, etc. LTS relesses are always the first release in an even year, with 3 regular releases in between, so the next LTS release will be 14.04. regular releases are generally used to roll out new default software, and LTS releases are generally preceeded by working on bug fixes and papercuts, rather than new features or programs.

    So, you are on 12.10. Go to System Settings and look for Software Sources (I think that is what it is called in 12.10. It is now called Software & Updates in 13.04). Open the Updates tab and ,look for the panel that says - Notify me of a new Ubuntu version. It should be set for "Any new version." Change it to "For Long Term Support version."

    Now you will not be notified by the OS when 13.10 is released. You want to stick with 12.10. But you will be notified when 14.04 LTS is released towards the end of April 2014. and you can easily upgrade. Although many will advise downloading the image and installing as from the beginning.

    It's like this: 12.10 (18 months support)
    13.04 (9 months support) 13.10 (9 months support) 14.04 LTS (5 yrs support)

    The 6 months releases use to be 18 months support but as of 13.04, ubuntu cut that back to 9 months support...

    LTS release come out every 2 years in even numbered years:

    Ex: 12.04 LTS (april 2012) 14.04 LTS (april 2014) 16.06 LTS (april 2016)...

    @grahammechanical: you mean he can just jump from 12.10 to 14.04? I thought he'd have to go through all the 6 month releases first to upgrade to 14.04?
    I know that when you are ON a LTS (like 12.04) you upgrade directly to the next LTS (14.04)....

    Bumping from non-LTS to LTS releases is kinda tricky if you are not at the previous version of Ubuntu prior to the LTS - 11.10 to 12.04 has less steps to get from 11.10 to 12.04 than say 10.10. If you were running 10.10, you would need to upgrade to 11.04, 11.10, then 12.04.

    The same thing applies if you want to upgrade from 13.04 to 14.04.

    Hope that makes sense.

    I rremember reading somewhere in the forum that "upgrading" from 13.04 to 13.10 will only involve changing the sources list (kind of like Debian) and there is no need to "upgrade" in the present sense or fresh install, is that true?
