October 19th, 2013, 02:35 PM
I'm a new ubuntu user. installed 13.04 version just a few hours before the latest one got out (had no idea it's coming!).
so now I'm trying to update to the new version using the software updater, only at some point i get an error & i have no idea what it says or means!
can someone help out?
I'm using the 64 bit version.
rig: G640 CPU, HD7770, Asrock H71M-DGS mobo, 1TB STA II HDD. running alongside windows 7...

i know it says connection error, but before it appears it's actually done downloading the new package!

It is a must that you should have your system uptodate before attempting to upgrade.

Since your 13.04 is almost a new install, why don't you do a fresh and clean install of 13.10 after downloading the .iso. In terms of total time consumed a clean install will be faster and cleaner.

My two cents...
