    Upgrading from 13.04 to 13.10 Prep for Upgrade Error

    Just as the Title suggests, I am getting a "Preparing the upgrade failed" error when attempting to upgrade from 13.04 to 13.10 when running the
    do-release-upgrade -d
    command.

    Anybody have some advice?

    This is standard Ubuntu, the screensaver is deactivated, 13.04 is updated, and I got one error when running sudo apt-get update
    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/drwright/st...amd64/Packages 404 Not Found
    And yes, update-manager-core is installed.

    Re: Upgrading from 13.04 to 13.10 Prep for Upgrade Error

    I got rid of that PPA, now.
    I updated my computer again, and then restarted and ran the
    do-release-upgrade
    command.

    The terminal output
    ~$ do-release-upgradeChecking for a new Ubuntu release
    No new release found
    This confused me, because I have 13.04. I checked my Details page and it verified this.

    Thanks for your help so far, by the way.

    I ran that last command incorrectly. (forgot the -d)
    It is now updating!

    Wheeladrew; You do good work !

    You are aware that what you are installing is not the final release version ?
    Version 13.10 is scheduled for release on the 17th of this month... There are yet to be changes from this build that is installed as to what will be.

    Hopefully the wonderful package manager will take care of all.

    on your mark, get set ->
