    Can not upgrade to 13.10

    I wanted to do an upgrade from 13.04.

    So I sued this commend

    sudo update-manager -d
    But I got this error

    Could not calculate the upgrade


    An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade.


    This can be caused by:
    * Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu
    * Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu
    * Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu


    If none of this applies, then please report this bug using the command 'ubuntu-bug ubuntu-release-upgrader-core' in a terminal.

    Re: Can not upgrade to 13.10

    It is important to uncheck any ppas you have before doing the upgrade (in your software sources as phillinux mentioned)...
    If you haven't started to try again yet, i would like to suggest that instead of upgrading using the software updater as you are trying to do, burn a daily build iso of 13.10 and run it in live session, then once it loads in, select "install ubuntu" from the unity dock and when the installer opens, select the option to "upgrade to 13.10" (rather then the other selection that wipes out your current install and makes a clean install of 13.10)...

    that is the way I upgraded my 13.04 to 13.10 development and it worked well...all my data carried over, and most of my apps and settings...a few tweaks and i was good to go...
    I only ended up having to re-install Google Chrome and MS Core Fonts...and re-adjust a few settings...quite a time saver! and it was much faster then using the software updater which has to go to to the web for the packages...

    however, before starting...uncheck your ppas until after install is done...

    Were there any errors when you did the apt-get update upgrade.

    Oh hang on the updater has changed all your sources to saucy. Might be better to take a step back and change them back to raring then make sure your system is fully up to date first.

    I don't think just disabling (Unchecking) PPAs is ok. It can leave packages on the system, what can cause issues with resolution of dependencies. Best way would be to remove PPAs with ppa-purge if possible, and if not then trying manually to remove all packages from PPAs repositories.
